I went down to check some of my dormants and see if any were totally not showing. The only one I had noticed being completely not visible was 'Magnificent Rainbow' . I had a list in my computer but when I upgraded to windows 10 I lost it and many other documents. I did have a printed copy but it needed to be updated, I had some deletions and quite a few additions that were not on the list. So, after updating the list I went down to the garden to see if I could actually tell the dormants from the evergreens and semi evergreens. A few dormants were distinguishable as dormants, most of them I would need the list to actually see what they were registered as and several of the evergreens in my garden actually could have passed for dormants. I did make a discovery that the plants were absolutely totally infested with aphids. So I started pulling all the dead foliage and a lot of the green foliage trying to thin it down so I could actually spray and have the spray reach the aphids, there seemed to be more aphids on the plants with the most foliage, especially on the ones with a lot of dead foliage. It seemed to act as insulation for the insects to allow the cold not to kill them all. It looked like most of them were dead, but many were not and they multiply so fast I do intend to spray them. It started raining before I got through pulling all the foliage but I did get over half way done and about two thirds of the way through the plants in the bog. I figure the bog plants will be the most infested but I did not get a chance to check any of the other plants yet.
Still, of all the plants I checked this morning none of the dormants had completely disappeared from sight so still only 'Magnificent Rainbow' is the only one, and I am afraid it might be dead instead of dormant. I guess I will continue checking and I will see some spring if it is alive or not.
Here is an example of what the plants looked like after having the foliage pulled. Yes, those little white specks are APHIDS!!!

I ordered a large box of caladium bulbs back on 07-20-18.... 08-15-18
Posted on Aug 15, 2018 4:08 PM

Not that long ago I ordered a large box of caladium bulbs. I planted them out under an oak in the front where my wife wanted a little color. I had no way of knowing what the leaves would end up being other than Bill told me he would put the 'Red Flash' in one corner. Well naturally during shipment they were moved about so I had to just do the best I could to plant them and interspace them with the other bulbs. I planted some of the bulbs in the back also, and I gave my daughter a whole box full of smaller bulbs out of the large box. The bed sill needs a lot of work, removing rock and adding mulch, etc.
Anyhow I am so pleased with how the caladiums themselves have done, here are some photos of the ones in the front bed under the oak.

I have added so much organic material to my beds I am greeted by these a lot of mornings.

Here is the latest shot of my little seedling cup beds. I have two of them full and hope to finish filling the last one by the end of the month.

Seeds planted in cups not stratified....07-23-2018
Posted on Jul 30, 2018 12:21 PM

Because I am impatient I decided to go ahead and plant some seeds that have not been stratified. I now have 72 cups planted with three seeds each. These were gradually planted as they were harvested over a period of weeks. I have also been putting seeds in the fridge, some of them have been in there over a month now. I plan to hopefully start planting them in later, and have it work out that by the time they are all planted they will have been in the fridge for at least a month.

These are not the crosses I was hoping to be doing this year, but these ending up being a fill in until I can grow out more of the plants I want to use and acquire a few more to go with them.
I am realizing just how much work is involved in growing a few hundred seedlings, and the record keeping is beyond me. I am still setting pods and trying to do a better job of keeping up with what is crossed with what. I have a large number of crosses with unknown as the pollen parent.
I planted my cups much closer this year than last year and am able to get many more cups per bed, not sure just where I plan to put all these but if the germination rate doesn't pick up I may not have to worry about space too much.
My goal was to try and at least create a few crosses that exhibited sculpted relief, even with the few plants I have that have the potential to do that, I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will have at least a few seedlings to show sculpted relief when they finally bloom.

The first new caladiums that I planted a few days back are now showing. So happy.

New caladiums...07-20-2018
Posted on Jul 20, 2018 7:39 AM

I ordered a large box of mixed caladiums to plant out front under the big oak. The bed unfortunately was filled with lava rock by the previous owners, so I had to dig through about a four inch layer of rock in order to reach actual soil. I added potting soil to the hole because I had no soil to put in the hole. I covered the bulbs with potting soil and what tiny bit of soil I managed to sift from the pile of lava rocks. I had to use the pick do dig the holes, so after just making one big circle around the tree I stopped for the day. Now I have lots of smaller bulbs to be placed inside the circle, but they won't require as much digging per hole, just a lot more holes.
