Scape watch 2013 has begun in the GH!
A couple of weeks ago I started checking all of my bulbs to look for signs of scapes starting to peak out. I didn't see anything but there were several leaves that were starting to grow. Last weekend I decided to give the bulbs that had leaves starting to grow a bit of water. Since I don't have saucers under each pot there was no way to in sure that plants beneath weren't watered from drainage.
So today, just four days later I started poking around and found a scape. Well then I really started looking around and found a total of 11 bulbs that have the tips of scapes just starting to peek out between the layers of the bulb.
The excitement has started with these bulbs, some of which are many years old reblooming. My oldest bulb goes back 21 years!! Now I need to be sure not to check every day but only check maybe two times a week otherwise I'll drive myself crazy looking for scapes!!
