It isn't the best job in the world., but the southwest open days are coming up in a week or so (22nd/23rd June) and I thought it was best to get rid of the seedlings that don't make the grade before people see them. Sarracenia 4, 120613 by John Jearrard, on Flickr These are six years old now. I went through them two years ago and threw most away, but there are always a few I'm not sure about, and it has taken another couple of years to make sure they don't make the grade. If I was more ruthless I could have saved myself a lot of space and trouble. Plants that aren't quite good enough at four years old are still not quite good enough at six. Sarracenia 6, 120613 by John Jearrard, on Flickr In the end I kept about a quarter of them (and I think I have a few duds still among them). It's a difficult job. Those that have survived this far will be watched and anything that starts to be disappointing will be out.
