Bad news!!!

rmbill(6a)March 7, 2011

I was planning to give a number of my extra plants for postage, BUT. Last night I let the propane run out for my greenhouse and I froze all of my seedlings and cuttings. I was sure I had enough for the night but I was wrong. The sad thing is I had a full tank setting right there. I also froze my plants that I had in dormancy, until last week, but they will come back. I think most of the cuttings will come back but I"m sure the seedlings are history and they were doing great, too. Oh well, I have more seeds to start.

Dummy me, Bill

Oh Bill, that's our worst nightmare! I am so sorry for you, and hope many of your brugs surprise you by reviving again.
Wow, so sad! Hope you're able to start again! :)

Sorry for the miscalculation and resulting loss of plants. Glad that you still have seeds to start again.

After those kinds of mistakes I have learned to give myself "a talking to" and go on. Expect you have also.

I'm sorry to hear that happened. If you find that the EF seeds froze I have more that I can send you.

Bill,
Sorry to hear of your loss. That has been one of my biggest fears, loseing my plants to a personal mistake. Look at my trade/postage list. Maybe I can help you with replacements if yours don't rebound.
