While Working In The Garden

I harvested a seedpod.

Serrada, the pod parent.

And Original Love, the pollen parent.

I found this lily that has a lot of bulblets growing on the stem. Looking at the summer picture of this area in the garden, it is either my NOID tango lily or Loreto.

I dug one of my Tiny Ghosts to move it to another location and look what happened.

8 bulblets were collected from the Tiny Ghost stem.

Should be interesting.

Yeah, both lilies are LAs so they are compatible. I am really excited with the result of this cross. However, looking at the stored seeds, I see a lot of chaffs. Been going through my seeds today. I will be starting to sow my lily seeds from my crosses and seeds from NALS.

Can you get new lilies by planting the bulblets from the stems directly in the ground? Always wondered.

Yes, you can Carolyn.
