We'll have some kind of fall novelty lily all the way to Thanksgiving.
So...what's been happening at the greenhouse lately? We have seven "guest chickens" visiting our flock. Our friends Helen and Bill are on a long vacation and their hens are visiting the Peterkort Roses chicken spa. What could be better, free range among the rose plants, no rain, no coyotes or hawks.
We are enlarging our lily area, pulling out an area of Bridal White roses and putting in the right plumbing for our lily program. In the winter it takes more area to grow the lilies so we need space. A lily that might take 9 weeks to bloom in the summer might take 12 or more weeks in the winter!
Also I am planning a trip to Amsterdam again in November to do more rose sleuthing. I am trying to find new and exciting rose varieties!
