|Autumn Frost mulched|
Two things arrived today. UPS brought 5 bulbs of the Oriental Lily 'Siberia'. Siberia is an all white cultivar supposed to be superior to Casablanca. We'll see. It will be planted near Casablanca in the shadow of Peony 'Krinkled White' in the White Garden. Should be a nice addition to that garden.
The other item arrived by Post. It is seeds from Lakeside Breeder #4. I bought these from M&M seeds, actually it's from Jeff Miller at Land of the Giants. There were a lot of seeds in the envelope. I think I'll freeze these for a while before planting them this winter. Thus far I have seeds from Lakeside Breeder #4, Hi Ho Silver, and Epson Derby. The seeds from Epson Derby are a gift from Rick Goodenough. They are OP and consist of a scape full of seed pods. I had pulled off the pods and put them in an envelope to dry. Today I checked the envelope and some of the pods had opened. They are full of seeds. More seeds than I can possibly plant. Should be fun this winter seeing if I can get anything interesting from these seeds. I may winter sow some of the Epson Derby seeds because there are so many.
Tomorrow I'll plant the Lily bulbs and see if I can finish weeding and mulching two more beds.
