Happy Fertilizer Friday everyone!
This is about it for me. The yard is dead as usual for this time of year. Maybe more so since we had such a cold December. I will be interested to know what makes it this Spring. Some things are not looking to promising!
The violets do great this time of year though so that is the important thing right? I have a new one setting buds and that is exciting because it will be the first time for it! I have no idea what color it is going to be(-:
You might remember that two years ago this April I purchased leaves from a Violet grower. Read About Them Here
Well, it took forever for them to grow. Most have not bloomed yet! I did fertilize regularly too. Oh well. It was a fun experiment! (-:
I would not do it again that way but it was a cheap way to get a bunch of different violets all at one time(-: I just didn't know it would take so long for them to grow and mature enough to bloom. If I had a greenhouse it would have happened much faster I'm sure, but since I don't, they have to sit in the window and hope for the best(-:
All of the plants have healthy leaves but only four violets bloomed so far! I started out with 2 leaves from 13 different violet plants. I have 9 different plants that rooted and grew out of those leaves. Whoopie! So it wasn't very successful for me.
