I have wanted to share pictures of some of my seedlings but have been a bit shy, considering I just started and these are my first-ever seedlings. There are some pretty impressive hybridizers on here so I hope my humble seedlings are worthy of sharing.
I did show a few of these in a seedling thread but some have not been shown before. There will be hundreds more each year to look forward to since I went a little crazy and continue to hybridize like a mad woman.
I couldn't be happier with my new addiction.
These all bloomed in 2020 as seeds started in 2019 so I am quite pleased. I wasn't expecting blooms so soon since I am in zone 4b. As a 'new mom' I thought they are beautiful and I am only showing the ones with good plant habit/bud counts. I know that the plants were still immature so am confident they will improve some in subsequent years.
Thanks for looking and for your feedback, good or bad.
And if anyone is looking for seeds to start, check out my ad over on classifieds. I need to get rid of more seeds or else I will think I have to start them ALL!
