Hello Daylily Friends,
We have spring weather here in Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia. I've just been watching the afternoon weather news, and we have temperatures in the 60s. The wind is coming in off the Atlantic coast, and it is "warm & humid." I understand that this will bring fog and even spring rain on Wednesday. In fact, I understand that the rains cold be severe. Meanwhile, I've had another bloom on
SAWYER'S GIGGLES. My last effort at pollination was not successful, so this time I've tried TET. ROSE F. KENNEDY. I sure hope that this works. It would be good to tie these two reds together. I'll let everyone know if I'm successful.
I have also been working in the big Greenhouse to solve the nuisance I've had with gnats. I've sprayed a mixture of Ortho's Malathion directly on the plants, I've treated everything with Bayer Tree & Shrub, and I've used Real Kill "smoke bombs." I'm sure that there are still gnats in the Greenhouse, but they are becoming hard to find. I've done them a lot of damage.
More news soon.
