6 month old seedlings

marricgardensFebruary 12, 2014

I had 2 - 6 month old seedlings flower. We were getting some nasty weather so I had to bring the pots inside when I noticed scapes on them. I didn't think the weather would turn so fast and they never got planted. I put them in my cold room thinking they would do well in there for the winter. Unfortunately one of them doesn't know enough to stop scaping, even tho there is no light in there most of the time. My question is, do you think I should bring them into the sunroom and start letting them grow or should I leave them where they are for a bit longer? The cold room is dark most of the time and not heated. Right now the plants have gone 'semi dormant'. Marg

Hi Marg, If your sunroom is heated, I would put them there. I would also cut the scapes off to conserve their energy until they are bigger and can go back outside. Sounds like they are determined to grow, they might as well be comfy! Kim

Thanks Kim. I did bring them in anyway and cut the tops off. They were a bit green because they never did go really dormant. Just hoping they grow! Marg

Just wanted to let you know that I did bring them into the sunroom and both are now growing. Marg
