By farmerdill on Mar 26, 2015 10:31 AM, concerning plant: Brussels Sprouts (Brassica oleracea 'Prince Marvel')

Grew Prince Marvel in Virginia's New River Valley. Transplanted in July, topped at Thanksgiving harvest at Christmas. Performed much better than Catskill and long Island improved under those conditions.

Very small, very early (1-2 lb conehead) hybrid. Performs well in spring planting.

A beautiful and colorful crocus! I've grown a few of these before and they're a very special variety! They're so distinctive looking and all the colors complement each other in a wonderful and pleasing way. A cheery sight to see after a cold and snowy winter!

By Marilyn on Mar 25, 2015 11:27 PM, concerning plant: Crocus (Crocus vernus 'Twilight')

After seeing Newyorkrita's pics of Twilight last Spring in the database and the bulb forum, I had to get 25 of them myself this past Fall. The flowers are a gorgeous deep purple. I've never grown and/or seen a crocus such a dark purple. Outstanding in the garden from a distance and close up! I'm getting more this Fall! A gem of a crocus!

By Marilyn on Mar 25, 2015 10:59 PM, concerning plant: Snow Crocus (Crocus chrysanthus 'Cream Beauty')

Years ago, I bought many packages locally of what was supposed to be Crocus 'Blue Pearl'. The following spring, I realized that the flowers of Blue Pearl turned out to be Crocus 'Cream Beauty'. At first I was disappointed, but in time I discovered I loved Cream Beauty. The creamy yellow color of the flowers, mixed with the bright orange color of the stamens, makes this a beautiful and memorable crocus. It lasted many years in my garden until the wild rabbits discovered the clump. The rabbits ate not only the leaves, but also the flowers, and the bulb needs the leaves to store up energy for the following year.
