RE: Discuss your experience growing Ferris Wheel

OK, I'm trying to put on my thinking cap b'c methinks Iknow you with a different user name, perhaps, b'c the same variety was just brought up elsewhere a couple of days ago and I did speak to it.

When I remember I can fetch that thread and post it here.

The statistical probablility of two different folks bringing up the same rather unknown variety within a couple of days is low, but is possible, that's for sure.

Carolyn, and maybe there are some here who have grown it and can contribute.

Right. I just checked it out and matched up the location.

I'm still hoping that someone besides me has grown Ferris Wheel, which is a variety that Craig got out of the USDA many years ago when he and I were doing that and it was OK to do it, but not now, for several reasons.

Below I did link to Tania's page for it where there are several reports and also noted several seed sources, ahem, and I'm pretty sure it was Craig who sent it to Adam Gleckler so if you don't have seeds that might be a good place to go.

Hope that helps.

Carolyn
