Hybridizing is not the same as gene manipulation or inserting foreign DNA into an organism.

The points of issue in the topic are "how did this happen with these new varieties" since currently no one seems to know, and let me tell you processes like these are't cheap and don't occur naturally. Plus the fact they did slip into the public market shows flaws in the processes already instituted to prevent it.

It's fine if you don't care, but you're comparing apples to oranges.

and YES I'd love a Wolf or Bobcat!!
Wolves however are a massive commitment and are fairly destructive when kept as pets. Bobcats I don't know as much about, but I can imagine the commitment to be equally as expensive and time consuming.

Well, at least you are consistent. Most people, I can't say the same for. Kudos.

UK Here .....

I usually pick a different colour scheme with trailing petunias every year.

Particularly in the two tall pots either side of my front door. This year I

ordered the *new* colour orange ones, and am really pleased with the results.

I will be sorry If I cant get them for another spot next year.


I find petunias are great for a quick splash of colour and use them a lot, cant

say I have noticed the smell, perhaps it is over powered by the aromas of the

honeysuckle, roses lillys etc.?
OR maybe the UK ones lack smell?

I will be quietly jealous of you for this^. OK...it's massively jealous. I use New Guinea Impatients if I need orange. Couple of years ago I did a purple & orange theme with some blues and whites for contrast. I hadn't planned it, but that year those colors were on sale at the flea market. Big flea market, all the growers go there to dump plants cheap.

Thank You, I think?


BTW I'm not against hybridized stuff, but the GMO we have no long term studies in humans of the roundup over generations. We don't know what it will do, but I grew up learning eating pesticides wasn't healthy. I'm sure you did too!

I am currently trying to deepen the blue of my wisteria .... any ideas? looking to

use what is currently used to do that with hydrangeas.


A cheap efficient tip I have to pass on is my own 'natural' weed killer. Mix in a spray

container 3 litres of white vinegar with 1/3rd of a cupful of salt and a generous

squeeze of washing up liquid soap.
Works a treat!

Although your photos look nice. Personally I'm not a fan of orange pets. I have a basket of them I hated and hid in a less visible part of my garden. Today I felt bad and brought them back to,tend to since I didn't water them daily in this extreme heat

Orange flowers are just ugly in general. Peach are nice and marigolds as well of course
