I just posted an updated photo, Pat.
Nearly three weeks later - how are they doing?
Well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and the seedlings. I hope the spirits that be smile kindly on your kind, generous effort and keep those nasty Santa Anas at bay!
Thanks, Leanne. My fingers are crossed!The seeds were mail-ordered, Andy, from a company that specializes in them. The sieve that passes for my memory does not recall the name of the company, but if you really want to know, I'll look it up for you. I don't know how these seedlings will fare -- the desiccating Santa Anas are approaching. Not sure when I'll be able to plant them -- probably when they outgrow their seedling quarters.
That's fantastic Martha! We're these seed you found locally from plants in your area or ones you bought? That's one of the benefits of living in your climate. I'd have to wait until March to start seedlings, either indoors or in a greenhouse. When do you think you'll be able to plant them in the ground somewhere?
Plum, you and Gayle and such good women to try and help the Monarchs. I wish you lots of butterflies.
Ooooo, so nice to see them getting started. You're doing your part--Hooooray! :-)https://xerces.org/2017/09/08/monarch-butterflies-disappearing-from-western-north-america/
Thanks, Bill. It's my brown thumb these little plants will have to fight. Tsk.
Good work, Plum. And good luck!
