It is winter gardening time! 🙂  After snow days, outdoor gardening is done for the year, it is winter indoor growing season.

又是冬天室內孵種的時節了! 🙂  外面沒得種,只好改為戶內玩.

Seeding project: 孵的種子如下:

Clematis, tulip tree, tree peony, cranberry, blue poppy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meconopsis , rhododendron, masterwort, Japanese forest grass, perl-bush, passion flower vines, yellow Magnolia, blueberry ‘Pink Lemonade’, Chayote(Sechium edule), Hibiscus, Yucca, …

鐵線蓮,馬褂木(北美鬱金香樹),牡丹,蔓越莓(小紅莓),藍罌粟 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meconopsis ,酒紅杜鵑,大星芹,金色知風草,白鵑梅,西番蓮(百香果),黃花木蘭,紅檸藍莓,佛手瓜,絲蘭,…等.

Experiments: 實驗如下:

1. Flowering raspberry: propagate from cuttings.   From the information I got that from cutting is not option but I think it should be doable because it is rose family.  It has been over a week the shoots on the cuttings remain green so far!

1.紫花覆盆子的扦插實驗.  據所查的資料繁殖為種子或分株.  並不包括扦插.  我就取了2枝條來試試看.  已過一週,芽點仍是綠的.

2.Grow tulip tree and fern-leaf beech from green wood cuttings. — Never try these two plants before so I figure why not to give it a try.  After 10 days, they are still green and firm.

2.蕨葉山毛櫸和馬褂木(北美鬱金香樹)的新枝扦插實驗.–沒玩過,試試看. 已經10天了,仍然可見透綠也無失水現象.

3.Lotus over winter indoors. — Due to lack of hot summer days for seeds to grow to flower, I am using timer and light to keep them green as long as possible in the basement. — I want to see how they will behave this way and  how long will they live?  Will they die or dormant until next spring?  We will see!

3.荷花室內越冬實驗–由於今年夏天熱的天數不足,使荷花生長遲緩,在室內使用光照維持它們到冬眠,要看它們的冬眠表現.

4.Clematis: Except that Clematis ‘Nelly Moser’ I am growing lots from seeds.  I am also try the first time to grow Clematis akoensis Hayata.  It is a tender perennial Clematis vine with fragrant flowers.    I want to see how cold hardy they are if I can grow them.  http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Clematis_akoensis

4.鐵線蓮: 除了手上許多的’Nelly Moser’在孵種子外,另外要試屏東鐵線蓮的耐寒性. –如果今年能孵的出種子的話,明年就可以試驗了.

5.Brazilian passion flower vine:  This year one was growing very well, I would like know if this one can survive over harsh winter here without any protection.   Suppose hardy zone 6.   In theory it will be alright. — Hopefully it will live!

5.巴西耐寒的西番蓮,說是耐寒在這裡理論上是可以在戶外過冬的.  這株很強健今年開了不少花,要看它不經保護的越冬結果如何.

6. Growing rose from cuttings of long stem rose from store bought bouquet. — In summer time, it is not likely to succeed because the temperature.  But now it is cold enough to play with them.   The one I am trying is apricot colour with nice fragrance!  🙂  The cuttings are in the pots by the window.

6.取長莖玫瑰花(是花店賣做切花用,有怡人香味的)截取枝條扦插,冬天的扦插率大於夏天的扦插存活率.  盆放地點為室內靠窗有陽光處.

Here is the fragrant long stem rose picture: 取有香味的長莖玫瑰來扦插實驗其花照如下:

  1. I have never thought of trying to grow store-bought roses, but that is an excellent idea. I always grow pineapple tops (am in zone 9b), carrot tops, etc. And sweet potatoes make a lovely ground cover + their leaves can be used like spinach – oh, and the tubers are good to.
