Green Mt order delivered
Another order came via UPS from Vermont. All of the hosta were in bags with some peat around them, I guess that is what I saw. There were some big pips poking up, but nothing unfurling. Since I was extremely tired today, having spent the entire day blending mix and getting rid of the WalMart pots which were rotting my hosta, and giving all the rescues new potting mix and a new pot, I just put the Green Mt bags in a cool spot in the house ... our a/c is running ... so I can do the potting early in the morning shade while it is nice and cool.
Here are the NEW GUYS ...which means each variety is added to my total....but only ONE per variety, correct? So the duplicates do not count, correct? Good. just so I'm on the same page with the way things are done.
Dust Devil....I had it, lost it due to southern blight. Added back to my list.
Alligator Shoes ... medium
Dixie Chickadee ...fragrant
Fat Cat ...medium
Harpoon...medium (got 2 but only count it once, okay?)
Montana Aureo Marginata ... giant
Reptilian ... small
Sweet Home Chicago ...medium
Perhaps you can see the influence of DonB in a couple of the above hosta.
The rest of the order consisted of
2 Princess Anastasia...I thought mine had died, so I ordered 2 more, and now #1 has 7 lovely eyes!
Dick Ward ...medium.... #1 dates from 2010
Dark Shadows...medium #1 dates from 2012
Fragrant Dream...large....I only had ONE want a backup
Fujibotan ..medium...#1 from GreenMt too
Verna Jean...small...ordered 4 more, now I have 10 of these and they multiply so easily. I'm working on a border for in the ground! How neat is that!
Since they are all pips, give me a few days for the pictures to be interesting.
