The two pictures for each variety should be a closeup of the flower (left) and a picture of cuttings (right). Click the small picture to open a larger image.

The picture of the cuttings will show several different possibilities including;

1. not yet viable cuttings being pointed at with a pencil (cuttings have to be between the thickness of a pencil and the thickness of my small finger),

2. cuttings inserted in one gallon pots and placed in a zip lock bag (not yet rooted),

3. if the cuttings root it will show a picture of plants growing from a one gallon pot (multiple cuttings in a single pot have to be divided). If they dont root I'll delete the picture (we also have hundreds of unidentified plants that may be sold once they flower and been identified).

4. If I send cuttings out to a greenhouse it will show many loose cuttings in a large plastic bag in a box being readied for shipment.

5. If I dont have any plants of that variety for mailorder but have larger plants that have to be picked up at the plant sale a picture of those larger plants might be shown.

Click the picture for a larger image that can be studied more closely or saved as wallpaper (if a different picture I will over-write with the inventory picture next spring). The date the picture was taken should be noted in a corner of the picture.
