Hi again,
Spent an hour ,late Sunday , assessing some  early cutflower sdlgs.These are third year down.
Main criteria when making the cross was earlyness and stem length.
All are sdlg  x  sdlg  —  all have either Malvern City  , Toorak Gold or both in their breeding to give tall stems.
Some are almost too tall, can become top heavy in a rain – frost combination.
Next step is checking their openning from bud.
Cheers John
