Fall sown ....

PVick(6b NYC)July 4, 2007

indoors. Only one of five seedlings made it; finally it's been repotted and made it outside. I need more of these!

Lisianthus:

a little closer:

And while not fall-sown, she's about to fall over from fighting sleep:

PV, I love them both! The pink & the gray go very well together!

How wonderful. Here I heard that it is very difficult to grow from seed. Great job.

Nice work, PV, I tried them once with no luck, so I haven't tried them again since then. Yours are truly beautiful.

Gracie is still as cute as ever!

I think maybe I should have left it inside. It was growing so well in there, in a sunny window. Since I re-potted it two days ago (the day I tooks the pics), it has been looking very, very poorly. I'm hoping it's just some major transplant shock, and that it will recover.

They weren't easy for me, but I did manage to keep that one going long enough to bloom. I'm going to try again for some more - they are soooo pretty!

Pretty flower but that cat is lovelier! I am a sucker for grey cats and she's a doll. Lucky you.

What a cutie! Love the little black triangle at the end of her nose.
Lisianthus...yeah. Yours are gorgeous. They have the most delicate, rose-like buds.
Me, I tried so many times to start those darn things. I haven't given up yet. But I got some cheap plants of them from Walmart last year and was disappointed at their scent and the way they (didn't)grow.
Still, I can't accept defeat. I will be sowing them again at some point, stubborn little bugger that I am.

I just love Lisianthus....I never even knew it existed until I did those Floral electives! They made nice bridal bouquets for a wedding we did while still in tight bud like the one to the left of your pic.
Gracie is a beauty girl! She so much reminds me of my mother's cat Smokey who left this world a few years ago at 18 years old.
