Putting Leaves Down!

eeeoelevenApril 17, 2011

I went to a local orchid show a couple weeks ago, and a local greenhouse that I frequent had a booth there. We had talked before, and I had told them how I grow violets. Turns out, they are interested in buying any plants I would grow and would have to offer of named varieties! So, I put some leaves down today of Bold Party Girl, Snow Jewel, Alamo Explosion, Ma's Country Girl, Funambule (hope this one sports for my own benefit!), and Sunkissed Rose.

Bagged up

Maybe I could get into this whole growing to sell business :) We'll see how this first batch goes!

Hi,
Just be careful that you don't sell any Optimaras or Rhapsodies because they are patented.

Can I ask- what soil are you using? I want to start some leaves from some African Violets I have but they don't seem happy in regular plant dirt?
