Tuesday, February 7, 2017 – Coleus, Floss Flower Seedlings

Another beautiful and mild day in Nauvoo for working outdoors but we spent our whole work day in the greenhouse and propagation room.  We finished the last of the Coleus cuttings. We’ve been working on them for the past several days and now they are all in the rooting trays. There are several thousand of them.
After lunch we worked in the propagation room transplanting Floss flower seedlings into the pony pack trays. This task of transplanting will last quite a while because there are so many seedling trays to process. Then, once they are in the pony pack trays and flourishing we will be transplanting them to larger 3” and 4” pots. So, there is a lot of transplanting left to do.
According to Richard, all of the seedlings, cuttings, pony pack trays and transplanting is on schedule and even a little ahead of schedule for this spring.  I am very excited about the work we are doing in the greenhouses and propagation room as we prepare for beautiful flowerbeds in May.
