More Seeds!

Cajun Sunshine x Raspberry beret.JPGCajun Sunshine x Raspberry beret Double 2Apart from the commercial seed catalogues we’ve received , yesterday came a letter from America from a fellow daylily (hemerocallis) enthusiast containing 110 seeds from his 2015 crosses. Now I have to decide how many I can sow, given that they all have to be found a space in the ground for at least 12 months. It’s so difficult as each new plant is unique, some may follow their “mother” some their “father” whilst others may be a stunning mix of the two! There will be hours of poring over photographs of each parent trying to best guess which ones to pick. The two photographs above are both from the same cross but while one is single the other is double yet neither parent is double. This does not help me decide which seeds to sow!
