Hey, Remember Those Seedlings?
Some of you may recall my seedling experiment. When you last saw them, the largest was all of about three inches in height. Here’s the second priming from the largest of my Goose Creek Reds, which now stands at 5′ and change. This leaf measures 27″ by 14″.
Best results have come from the plants kept under the lanai screen (which cuts approximately 40% of the UV) in earth boxes. All organic, by the way! They’ve been fed only compost tea, diluted to 10:1, and Espoma Garden Tone organic fertilizer. My soil was lacking, which resulted in slower than usual growth. Lesson learned — pH test before transplanting.
Thanks to Sandie in CT, my “horticulture coach,” for continuing to school me up!
