for donna

sorry u are upset with me donna I did not set out to upset u by having to many doubles lol the reason for so many doubles is because I put pollen of every double that I have onto all my single flowers ratio is 30% of the seeds wll be a double so that's 30 out of every 100 plants that germinate this season I have geminated around 4 to 5ooo plants yes that is 5000 so that is aprox1500 potential doubles from this season I hope that helps u donna to understand also as well as using blossom peacock I use many other doubles as well here is another double just for u donna reards and happy growing

Danny,

Well, you've seriously got the 'magic touch" and I'm not upset with you, I just envy you!!! ;-)

This one is a beauty too and you seem to most always get 4 flowers to boot!

So Danny, what are your ultimate planns for all of these bulbs? Do you give away the ones that you consider second rate or do you keep them all? Do you have your own plans to open a hippeastrum farm to give Maguire's a little competition? Or is this just a "glorious senior citizen obsession"??

What ever the answers to these questions, you're doing a bang up job and obviously enjoying yourself and we (I) enjoy seeing all you lovely creations...

Donna

Danny,

Does Lyn have the hippeastrum bug as much as you do? How do you care for that many seedlings. Sure wished I lived closer to you and Lyn so I could take some of those beauties off your hands LOL
