|Misti... I had Jonna about how to germinate them when I sent her confirmation number.
Here is what she wrote to me:
"You can winter sow the Chocolate Cosmos or start them indoors. I did sow them outside (I'm in zone 6) and inside in March, both in vermiculite. In your zone you can winter sow them now. As usual the outside planted seeds gave stronger plants, but they don't need a cold chill to germinate.
Would like to hear how many seeds germinate."
Maybe when she shows up she will have more to add for us.
Quoting: from Red Leopard
it shouldn't have plants around and I look at them and they named after the piggies I got from. Like if I have 20 pots of Comfrey growing they all called Chelle's comfrey as she sent me my first start. My yard has swapping piggies all in it. Just glad I don't have to share my bacon with them.
I'm chuckling away at especially the one post on the thread from the first link. Bout choked on my coffee when I read the guy couldn't talk cuz his mouth was full of seed.
So, I guess those of us with the Kitty Thyme, we need get a water bottle out start to spitting and save the backwash at bottom of other bottles we drink. We heard the technique here first from Joseph.
Since the Pink Banana (Musa velutina) is going to possible take so long, I think after sucking on the seeds for awhile like they was a mint. I'll sow them using Jonna's vermicultite techniques so they won't rot. I wil just have to remember I have a seed and not a mint and swallow the darn thing.
Joseph... If you haven't pulled that Pecan tree out yet. Let it be. I had so many tree seedlings this past year that I thought was total goners. Dead branches, no life I could see, bad shape all around. I tossed em over into a pile, and still haven't gotten em dumped , but while I was bust procrastinating the trees and shrubs have come back. I mean I had dry break off, rotted stems and took em til just a few weeks ago when I noticed the for the to come back. So you might just want to have some patience if it it still around. It may surprise you and come back up from the roots or come back to life on it's own.
