Following on from my post a couple of weeks ago, where I mentioned that I was concerned about the state of some of my ASTER ‘Duchess Yellow’, I am afraid I am going to have to admit defeat to a whole tray of them 😦
They have all practically died in one particular tray for which I have no idea why as it was a clean tray, cared for in exactly the same way as all the others – which still look like this:
But it would seem that they are destined to never bloom. I am going to have to keep an eye on the remaining two trays as some of the seedlings seem to be turning slightly yellow.
On another worrying note, the same thing seems to be happening to a one of the five trays of LARKSPUR ‘Giant Imperial Mix’.
All four other trays look healthy and are coming on great guns, but the one particular tray above just looks, well, depressed! Another tray to keep an eye on!
Finally on the “concerns list” are my GYPSOPHILA ELEGANS ‘Covent Garden White’.
They look so straggly and I have no idea why they look so ‘unsettled’ in their cells. Also, if you look closely, it looks as if something has actually walked over the tray due to the indents in the compost – ????
In much more positive news, there are a couple more varieties of plants from my order which are starting to show growth 🙂
Firstly, one of the GERANIUM ‘Hardy Mix’ has broken through the soil.
Okay, so it is a little bit “blink and you’ll miss it”, but there is definitely something there. (For those unsure, due to the crappy focus, it’s the three little white blobs!)
The ECHINACEA ‘Hot Papaya’ have also sprouted!
These are Wendy’s but I’m still pleased there is life to be shared!
So, although slow, progress is being made. I am dying to get out in the garden and carry on with my re-design, but due to weather and Will being home from school on half term at the moment, it’ll probably be next week before I can get out there again.
