Four trays of ranunculus transplanted into the hoophouse. Challenge: keep them from freezing or frying without automatic controls. Keeping an eye on temperature sensors.
Seed sowing is just beginning to pick up - two trays yesterday:
Achillea (yarrow) 'Cassis', 'Colorado'
Antirrhinum (snapdragons) 'Mme Butterfly'
Carnation 'La France', 'Scarlet'
Centaura (bachelor's buttons) 'Florist Mix'
Consolida (larkspur) 'Lilac', 'Smokey Eyes'
Cynoglossum (chinese forget-me-nots)
Dianthus (sweet william)
Gypsophilia (baby's breath) 'Covent Garden'
Lagurus (bunny tails)
Monarda (bee balm)
Papaver nudicaule (iceland poppy) 'Champagne Bubbles Orange'
Phlox drummondii "Cherry Caramel'
Other notes - 'Cherry Caramel' ( sown ??) may need to be bumped up to larger soil blocks. 'Magic Fountains' delphinium has terrible germination rate; Iceland poppies, not much better. A few Himalayan poppies have sprouted :). Pinched snaps down to first set of leaves.
Am itching to start some of the full season plants - zinnias, amaranths, strawflower - but still too many weeks before the end of frost!
