Right now I have Caerulea, Lady Margaret, Alto-Caerulea, & Lavender Lady in bloom. Everyone but caerulea seems to be having a problem producing pollen- The antlers on all are shriveled.. So I've been taking the pollen from the caeruleas and rolling around pollinating every other flower in sight.
So far, I *might* have had success with one Margaret as it's startin' to swell. Nothing else has 'taken' even though I've polinated 50+ flowers in the past week or so.
Out of frustration & curiosity, is this a common problem? All I want is to cross something. I don't care if it's been done, and I don't care if it hasn't and ammounts to nothing anyway. I just want to be able to say "I've done that".
Do I just have a bunch of duds in bloom right now, or what?
