I've been busy re-potting. Been waiting for my order from the Violet Barn. I felt a little silly ordering wick potting mix, but now so glad I did. Theirs is so much more course than what I mixed myself. Vermiculite, some pieces look like Indian beads. Perlite was also bigger, and much more of it than what I had added. The peat smelled ever so good after water was added. Glad I got it.
My next violet order I would love to get some true reds. Cardinal red, Christmas red, stop sign red, fire engine red. What out there have you seen or grown have been the closest to these colors from Lyon's or Violet Barn. Was thinking maybe Buffalo Hunt, Tomahawk, Ma's Crime Scene. Ma's Red Rover, Spring Cardinal, Jolly Texan. I've never seen a red in person. Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
