2019 will be the year of the Late Lotus Season! Spring of 2019 has been remarkably cool, to outright cold in Western New York. In mid April, we placed over 30 pots of lotus outside our greenhouses, with the intention of harvesting them. Life happens and we never got to them. The lotus in the greenhouse have been growing just fine and are about to flower. The pots outside are still dormant, due to the exceptionally cold weather.
We have finally decided to harvest these pots and they are yielding some wonderful lotus tubers! It’s rare to have fresh lotus tubers to offer in early June but here are a few varieties we can ship immediately. Pot these tubers and expect flowers to appear within 54 days or by August. Most varieties will flower throughout August into September. Of course, we still need warmth and sunlight to make these grow, so we hope the weather pattern changes! Do not forget your pots and Pondtabbs!
There may be a few additions over the next few days but order quickly, as supplies are limited!
