Although the last few days have been a bit wet, this summer has been quite warm for Calgary. Most of my seeds have already sprouted. I'm still waiting on my banana and banana cousin but they can be a little finicky and often take a while. I've been putting the pots outside on my balcony during the day and bringing them in for the nights. It gets cool here in the evening and temperatures drop to about 12C some nights (or cooler) even though the days may be 28C or so.
Unfortunately I have them all a good soak right before we had three days of rain. Most of the seedlings seem to be fine but I'm worried the Goji berries may be damping off. Hopefully they'll dry out before I loose any more. By the way, all of these seeds were stored in a fridge for over 4 months. It doesn't seem to affect their vitality. Anyways, without further adieu, here are the seedlings:
Eucalyptus pulverulenta (Silver Leaved Mountain Gum) - Most sprouted.
Brugmansia versicolor (Fragrant Peach Angel's Trumpet) - 1/5 I believe, just started yesterday.
Passiflora caerulea (Purple Passion Flower) - About 1/2 have sprouted.
Lycium chinense (Goji Berry) - Please don't damp off, please don't damp off...
Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm) - Here's to hoping it's not just a stray poplar seed. Ha hopefully I see some more.
