Kangaroo Paw!!

Finally! A seedling emerges!

Finally! A seedling emerges!

Finally! One of the Kangaroo Paw seedlings has emerged and I am entertaining visions of the fabulous house plant to come. My own little Australian garden here in New England.

Hopefully, some of the others will emerge as well, but I have my doubts. The packet directions said to put the trays in a couple of inches of water and keep them covered with plastic wrap. That is how I started, but within days I saw mold forming on top of the soil so I uncovered the trays and have been misting the soil  regularly. I rather suspect that this one seedling might just be of the heartiest strain to have survived thus far. A heating pad might have been a good idea back at the start, but I doubt it will do much good now. Then again – maybe worth a try!

About Susan Guagliumi

I am an author, craftsperson and a gardener. My proposal for a book tentatively titled "The Artful Gardener" was just accepted by Stewart, Tibori and Chang Publishers. Although this will be my fifth book, it is the first outside the area of hand/machine knitting. The manuscript is due early in 2013 and the book is scheduled for Spring of 2014. A somewhat longer process than giving birth to a child, embarking on an author's journey can be just as daunting, exciting and almost as fulfilling.
