Seedlings are up!

The seedlings have started to emerge. We have had a few days of sun and warmth as well as a big snow storm just this weekend. Once the seedlings poke up in the flats outside, they are moved in under the lights in the storage room. This will speed up the growing process. If there are too many seedlings in a cell, I prick them out with tweezers and leave just one or two strong ones.

What is coming up: Penstemon strictus (Rocky Mountain Penstemon), Ratibida columnifera (Mexican Hat), Heliomeris multiflora (Showy Goldeneye) and the Eriogonum umbellatum (Sulphur Flower Buckwheat).

Once true leaves emerge, they can be planted up into a larger pot.
