You'll find numerous updates ranging from an expanded list of articles (HTML, Word, and PDF formats), to F2 sxd hybrids organized by colour (with links to additional pictures and information), etc.

Lots more to do... never enough time

Oct 16: the seedlist has been updated.
July 17: 2002 hybridizing statistics now avilable.


Apr 22, 2002 - Welcome
Most of the snow that fell overnight disappeared by the end of the day. Only a bit was left on rooftops in some parts of the city.

As you can see (if you click on the picture), it was falling at 6:30 AM when I went off to work (right-hand picture).

...and to think a couple of days last week were so hot, that it felt like the middle of Summer. In fact, people were wanting to go into air conditioned buildings!


I can tell that a number of important crosses didn't work. This is disappointing, but of course that doesn't mean by any stretch of the imagination they all didn't work. For example, only one of the two 98-NP-1 crosses worked (using 98-NP-2 pollen), and the 98-NP-2 cross didn't work. All five 97-CC crosses failed, but others such as 97-DP-1, and 97-CA-1 appear like they'll set seed (both did).

The disappointment comes from the fact that I believe the 3rd generation will open things up significantly further. Naturally I want as many seeds as possible, and especially so from some of the "doubly special" hybrids.

If we're "lucky", there might be one seed on 96-CD-1 (no).


You can expect to see updated hybridizing statistics by the end of July.

In the mean time check out my Juno site. The bulk of the Junos will be starting into bloom shortly.
...just need to find time to get them loaded.
