Cacti Seedlings And WinterSowing


A month ago, January 11, I started some mixed cacti seed.
I was hesitant to mention it as I figured it would be a dismal failure.
Every single one of those seeds sprouted within days - and there were a lot of them.
They've reached almost an inch high and have the cutest little spines on some of them.
So, yay for me growing cacti.
Well, so far. I still have my fingers crossed.

I also got some wintersowing done. 15 jugs were tossed out into the snow on February 2.
I had to right two of them yesterday that the wind blew over, but they'll be fine. They always are.

I still have a lot of jugs yet to do, but I'll get there. At this point it seems that winter will never end.

And we put the Plant Stand up for this year and it has lots of cuttings on it as well as the onion seed. I just need to reign myself in so I don't get antsy and start the rest of the veg seed too soon.
I suppose The Grow Guide is worth another mention at this point. lol.

Fabulous Plant Information Site


"PlantLinks is an index to web pages describing plant species. It is different from a web search in that only pages from websites relevant to gardeners are included."

It might be a 'work still in progress', but wow, what a ridiculous source of information he has up there already. I especially like the fact that the links will open automatically in a new window so you don't lose the list of sites you're checking out. Very user friendly.

Need info on a plant? Check it out.

Good job Rob!
