*I was just out inspecting the bog to see how nicely it's filling up with leaves for mulch and noticed that S. flava and S. purpurea had some fertile looking heads nodding on some dried stems. I gathered them and to my surprise there are like tons of seeds in these things, though be they small. About like radish seed I guess. They seem round and fertile, not sunken in on the sides or anything. I'd love to have a go at them. I've put them in small glass bottles to keep them seperate, though I'm wondering about natural crosses in polination? Would be kind of cool to get some surprises. Both were in bloom at the same time.
* I've read about how seedlings can damp off at a certain age and their low success rates. I'd like to know if any of you have any tips? To stratify or not to stratify? When to start them, etc? Thanks for any info.
Bye for now,
P.S. My avatar is gone and I don't know why.
In the area where I originally picked it, it says:
"Indiana Gardener, this is where you can choose to use an avatar under yourname when you post a message on these boards.
You can either select an avatar already installed on this board, or enter a URL for an image you've got uploaded on your website. Please choose which you'd prefer."
But I don't see the "enter a URL for an image you've got uploaded on your website" option button. Where is it?
