Free seedling contest!

jandey1(TX8)February 13, 2013

I know it's not as exciting as a good Psycho contest, but as a consolation prize to those who didn't win Bill's competition I'm offering a couple of seedlings for this contest!

The first seedling is two-and-a-half years old and 20" tall, a seedling of Thai Peterson's Gold. These seeds probably came from the famous Kukiat groves, so there's some potential for a cool cross.

The second is a ten-month-old Gladys O'Neal seedling that's considerably smaller, but with great potential.

As some of you remember, last spring I searched far and wide to find a big Thornton's Lemon Drop and finally brought home a 44" tall one from the PSA sale in Seabrook. It was a multi-tip when I got it and after many inflos popped it is a multi-multi-tip now.

Guess how many tips the Big Yellow Beast has this spring and you win your choice of seedling, and the second closest guess gets the other seedling! You have until Sunday at 8pm CST to post your guess.

(pssst--here's a hint:

)

Thanks

Yeah! I missed the last game and I have been lusting after your E.T Lemon drop ever since so this will be fun!

Hmmm... I like 18... can I pick 18 if Matt already picked that? If so then 24. :)

Thanks!

Lots of very close guesses, y'all!

My computer is about to die, so if I'm not here for a few days, that is why. Don't panic! I'll get the seedlings out after I sort my computer.

Glad everybody is enjoying the game!

And we have our two winners!!

TLD had 14 tips when I got her last summer, and after nine inflos now has...

32 TIPS!

If she keeps going like this maybe I'll be able to offer a cutting as a prize one day. The first cutting is already spoken for--looking at you, K ;)

Congrats, Bill/cessna_175 and Mike/mksmth! Bill as you were closest, just email me with your preference and I'll let Mike know which to look for.

oh wow. I never once actually expected to be that close. Thank you so much Jen for doing this. As I said earlier I really hope that one day I can contribute the way you and Bill have.

Im going to be in Houston sometime in April and maybe in June also. Hopefully I can find a way to make the Clear Lake PSA sale but it may not happen.

CONGRATS to Bill/cessna_175 and Mike/mksmth!!! Good job guys. Thanks to Jen for the fun of another contest. Hope your seedlings produce many beautiful blooms. You'll have to keep us posted on how they do. Peg

Mike, Bill chose the Peterson's seedling, so I'll be sending you the small Gladys seedling in a small box.

I'm going to wait a few weeks until the danger of a bad freeze is gone, so just email me with an address and I'll get your packages ready and give you a head's up when they are on their way.

Definitely let us know if you can make the PSA sale in Houston in June! I probably can't make it this year but I'm sure lots of others on here will. Maybe you can bring Robert and Kenny along with you :)
