Every year there are some seedlings that germinate very late in the greenhouse just before it is time to clear out all of the seedling beds and replant with new seeds. Most years I do not keep late germinating seedlings, however this past December I decided to keep about 40 of them (coming from the more desirable crosses). This is one way to get some earlier blooms. Below is a photo of a late germinating 2014 seedling with the first bloom of the season.
Happy Valentine's Day!
