2007 Seedlings

Postby pauhaus » Jun 19, 2008 9:07 pm

Hi guys, these were grown from seeds I got from Chris from the seed exchange last year. Really happy with the Frosted Dimple seedlings, unbelievable variety, they are all solid but got yellow, green and blues. Also happy with the Green Piecrust seedling, showing piecrusting early. Thanks Chris.

How do the yellow seedlings look from Frosted Dimples? That's a bit surprising, but I had a feeling you might get some really nice blues from it. It is up there with Silver Bay as one of my favorite blue plants :D

And that Green Piecrust seedling looks fantastic. Excellent rippling for a young plant.

Thanks for sharing those Paul!

Hi Chris. Funny you should ask about the yellow. Only one made it through but it is a kind of ugly gray waxy yellow. I think this one might be named h. Phlegm. I'll post a pic. Also, the green I got looks really nice too, narrow dark green leaves held kind of upright, kind of looks like a tall Devon Green. I wasn't expecting any piecrusting so soon on the Green Piecrust seedlings, really looking forward to see how they grow up. Thanks for the comments and the seeds.

Here is the yellow plant (h. Phlegm) I got from Frosted Dimples OP seeds and a shiny green one from the same batch. Actually the yellow one looks much better now that it is greening up some. I guess I'll have to change the name. :D
