Kangaeroo’s Aussie seed experiment is moving forward, and today resulted in its first buds.
Seedling growth came from an everlasting, a pink, yellow and white flower native to Western Australia.
I potted everlasting seeds last weekend in humidity pods.
They’ve been growing under lights daily ever since, except for Tuesday night when the power plug short-circuited.
I’ve checked the pods daily to see how they are developing, so was delighted to see the little leaves sprout. Might have some stronger seedlings in the works.
Once they have grown big enough, I will transplant them into pots and move them into the hothouse outside.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to plant some and give the rest away.
Otherwise, Kangaeroo Corner is also providing some good news.
Parts of the garden are continuing to thrive.
The wattle, which sprung forth from what was left of a branch, appears poised to burst into flower.
Neighbors are also growing a wattle and their tree is already awash in the beautiful yellow blossoms.
More concerning are the one of the grevillea and tree fern, which appear to be struggling from the cold even though we have had a mild winter.
I’ll keep on weeding, watching over them and hoping for the best.
