Punotia seedlings

Post by Mike P » Sun Nov 29, 2020 4:09 pm

Fingers crossed for these as they go into their first winter. Only two survived from this years sowing - which to be fair is better than I have done before when they have all damped off in the summer which I know seems counter intuitive.
The seed is now several years old and germinated far better this year than last year which is interesting. The first two years sowing produced no results to date although I am keeping the pots outside this winter to see if that livens them up.

Well done Mike they look great, no mistaking them for anything but lagopus.
