Zone II Gavel Challenge – March 21st, 2015 Update

FORCING AQUILEGIA CANADENSIS (WILD COLUMBINE)
SPRING UPDATE FOR ZONE II SHOW
GAVEL CHALLENGE
CLASS 33

Bring your columbine plants indoors now as we have 6&1/2 weeks left until show time.

You can bring them into a warmer garage location for a week before moving them in your house so the cold to warm won’t shock them.

Only water if dry (too much water will rot the root ball). To jump start the plant’s growth once in your home, give it a slightly warmer environment—70 degrees—then move to 60-65 degrees.   Cooler temps encourage more blooms. Supplemental light is good—6 hours of sunlight—optimal.

Good Luck to Everyone! Remember that it is always easier to slow down the blooming process by placing in a cool environment.

Just to clarify,  the class calls for a glove of the exhibitor’s choice to be embellished as described in the schedule and displayed on a 45″ high gray pedestal.  A hand form, provided by the committee, will be mailed upon registration. Note: there will no longer be a green floor length cloth covering the pedestal.
