I am getting excited it has been 1 to 2 Thumbs up Thumbs up Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! years since I planted a few hundred seedlings and seeds, spring is right around the corner, my daylilies are coming back nicely after the winter. I am so hoping to see new blooms this year, from the ones I planted in 2017, and maybe even the ones planted last year.

Nice! Thumbs up Do you have any crosses you are really, really looking forward to seeing?

The local weather is keeping me from getting too far ahead of myself, but your post made me pop open my spreadsheet with my crosses that I expect to see the first time this year, too. Smiling

Yeah, inquiring minds want to know! I'm sure many of us have seedlings that we're hoping to see this year. And you know how much we love to list things on here Hilarious!

You should go first before the rest of us chime in.... Thumbs up

I hope you get lots of nice ones, it is so much fun to see the seedlings bloom. I don't think I have ever had a seedling bloom after 1 year, but you are a lot warmer than me. I had some bloom last year I am excited to see again this year and how they do

Have aprox. 500 - 2017 seedlings that should bloom this year. Aprox. 100 - 2018 in cold frame to be planted in seedling bed around May 1st. Takes me two years to bloom when seeds are started late Sept.

I really did not keep up with the crosses I planted, the first time I did, and all of them died. So after that I just planted them hoping they would live. I am not picky on the colors, or types of day lillies, I just wanted a beautiful color full garden.

Well after my first few failed attempts with my seedlings all dying, I did not keep up with what was what. Basically what I done was planted different seeds up to 20 in a pot, waited for them to grow some before planting them in my bed, I did it that way so I would not have the crosses beside each other. I still have a few hundred seeds from my plants from last year I need to plant, half will be planted at my house, the other half I am sharing with my mother, and sister in law.
I will be postin pixs once they start blooming

I love how you are doing it and wish you the best of luck this summer. I look forward to seeing pics of all the colors in your garden in a little while!

..oh... and I'm a little bit envious of your other blooms, but I'm hoping to see some crocus and then reticulated iris in two or three weeks, and then the fun gets started for me, too! Smiling

I should be here off and for since it is almost blooming time. The last year I have had lots going on, like always. Seems like I am always doing something. I am hoping to get my seeds in the ground in the next week that I collected last year. It's time to plant my sunflower seeds, and a few more annuals from the seeds I collected last year. I am only planted about 40 sunflowers in my front yard, the other thousand I am gonna plant in the back just for the hummingbirds and bees. I have a perfect spot picked out for wild flower mixed lot. I will be planting seeds for a week or so, I am also adding many more flowers to my mom's bed, like I do every year. If I had it my way I would not have a yard, it would only be a huge flower bed lol

Considering I still have about 6-8 inches of snow on the ground, it'll be a while before I see anything Sighing!

This year I'm hoping to see seedling bloom from
(2018 batch, so if I'm lucky...)
Ruby Spider x Persian Ruby (actually 2017, the other Ruby Spider cross did bloom last year)
Dotted Fever x Pink Stripes
Erin Farmer x (Heavenly Angel Ice x unk) (HAIxunk looks very much like HAI)
From Darkness Comes Light x Pink Stripes
Some Sun Bear seedlings
Jessica Lynn Bell seedlings
"Golden Eye Pink" seedlings (garden name for my avatar photo)
Beautiful Edgings x HAIxunk
And a couple of crosses with names like mvmls47wiz-27 X ttbwktm3-32 [(MAUDE'S VALENTINE x MILITARY SCHOOL) X WIZARD DELUXE]. X {TOOKY TOOKY BIRD X [(WILSON SPIDER x KINDLY LIGHT) x TOMORROW'S SONG] x MILITARY SCHOOL}.

I'm not counting my seedlings before they bloom on this year's seedlings, but I am looking forward to seeing (in 2020):

Hawaiian Swirls x Lighthouse Neon Galaxy
Va Va Voom x Colorful Chaos R2D2
Igor F. Palacios, M.D x Kathy Larson
Lavender Stardust (the white flowers) x Nowhere to Hide and also x'd with Beautiful Edgings
Ruckus x Speckled Trout
Westbourne Good Old Days x Diana's Evening Gown
Sun Bear x Heavenly Velociraptor (a line cross, hope to see more teeth and deeper coloration)
(HAI x unk) x Ocean Spirit
Speckled Trout x Coral Majority
Pretender x Moorish Beauty
Mega Bite x Larry's Twilight Bite
Give Me Eight x Nowhere to Hide
Velvet Rose x Wild Horses
Lake Effect x White Eye Pink Dragon
Chomp x Fang and Claw

Seeds are from Gramps (LA, EdBurton on here) JWWC (LA and here), petruske, ediblelandscaping and my own crosses. I counted 110 crosses so far for this year, with 300+ seedlings. I still have a bag of seeds in the fridge, with some starting to germinate. Hope they can hang on a while because I don't have any more space under lights for them...

Sounds like you have lots to look forward to, I can't wait to see the bloom, don't forget to share pixs with me. I am gonna try and plant my seeds this week and next week, depending on the forecast, don't want a repeat of last year, me in the rain hunting for my seeds that are washing away. I really need to sit down and order some seeds, so far all the ones I have, had been gifted to me, and I am grateful for that.

I'm hoping so, but I've yet to see what survived the winter. Was a harsh one here. And as far as ordering seeds goes- well the LA has a bunch still! I was really tempted by some Cowboy Scarf x RF Kennedy crosses Lovey dubby
I am resisting temptation- barely Hilarious! And whatever blooms, I'll post- the seedling threads are always eye opening and drool worthy.

I hope you have a better year this year! It sounds like last year's planting was the exact opposite of fun...

Got all 4 flower beds done. Now it's time to wait and see, really watching my day lilies from last year and 2 years ago, I already have some scape's on some I planted lastyear, that I got from a friend, don't know what color they will be of course. Here are some of my seeds and seedlings. Ignore the weeds, have not had time to pull them yet.

My grandson Zeke, maybe next year I will have him digging in the dirt. My grand daughter Norah lover to plant flowers with me, but she lives in England now.
