Cutflower Growers Journal Apr. 25- Apr. 30.
Thought I'd start another thread for this week. Although I appreciate that many may be busy, I thought the other thread was getting too long (29 posts).
I got 10 trays of sunflowers seeded over the weekend to transplant for an earlier crop, plus did two more trays of Purple Majesty for a later crop.
Also 10 4-inch pots of other things that will need transplanting once up and running.
Am waiting for pots to be delivered today so I can get on with transplanting perennials.
More lilies will also come this week along with gladioli.
Have some ground cultivated but with temps still at or below freezing at night and mighty cold and blustery during the day, I hesitate to put things out even though some can take the cold...it's that quick change in temps and the wind that would get them!
Got a bunch of free used pots and 1020 flats yesterday from a trucker who delivers plants and veggies from Florida up to the northeast. Many places just have piles of pots and trays that they heave, and I recycle. I offer to take any pots back from my customers, whether they bought stuff here or elsewhere. Gets them back once and also saves expenses for me.
Loads to do this week. Have a good one!
