Hi guys. My name is Joe and I'm just introducing myself to the board. I'm a 30 year old male from Long Island NY. I have been interested in lilies for about 5 years since I saw a tall asiatic lily that my mom had growing in her garden. Ever since then I've been gradually building my love for these great flowers. I am a first year member of NALS and have been studying lilies for a few years now. I now have over 60 varieties on my property and have been doing some very amateur hybridyzing for 2 years now and have some epigeal seedling under lights in my garage as we speak. I look foward to learning from all and contributing to this forum. - Joe

I pretty much copied this from my first post in the yahoo lily group from a few weeks ago, so sorry for the repeat if there are any dual members. I was directed here by someone who goes by "Interspecific" on a gardenweb forum so I thank that person for the suggestion. I've been snooping here for a week and love the site.

Hi and welcome to the Lilies Forum at ATP, Joe! I did see your post on the yahoo group. There are at least a few of us here who belong to both groups.

It is nice to have another seed starter with us! Now that you are a member of NALS you will have access to the seed exchange which usually starts in March or April, depending when the seed chairmen have it ready. It is a way to have access to interesting crosses even if you don't have the parent plants.

I think you will find this site much more active than gardenweb and the programming architecture of the forums here is far superior and user friendly. While you learn to navigate around All things Plants, you will find that the "Site Talk" forum is a good place to ask general questions about using the site:

We hope you can take photos of your lilies next summer and post them here.

Hi Joe: And welcome Welcome! I am 'interspecific' on the other forum--so happy to see you found us and decided to join in our discussions. I was just thinking about you yesterday, wondering if you found this forum ok and if you read my suggested threads. You'll find that this forum has a truly dedicated group of 'regulars' who share a deep common interest in the genus lilium, yet each appreciates them in slightly different ways: some grow them as placement plants in beautiful mixed gardens, some grow mainly Species, some cross pollenate and seed while others grow them because lilies are 'just plain beautiful'. Collectively, there is a broad knowledge base here. I look forward to reading your future threads and posts. "Together, we learn from each other" Again Welcome!

Hi Joe and welcome to ATP. Where do you live on Long Island? We're way out on the North Fork, in Southold - snowy Southold today but it's melting fast.

Just an hour away!

Peak bloom here for OT lilies is early July, Asiatics in mid June. Just give me a call if you'd like to visit.
