chinese lanterns (physalis alkekengi)

happy easter! lots to do today, so just a quick photo update on the chinese lanterns for the ygg grow-a-long...





these were started from seed on april 23, 2006 under grow lights and then were moved outside on may 29, 2006.





i transplanted a few of the plants into the pot below and they came back in 2007. today, they're still outside and seem to be doing just fine.



it's important to remember that chinese lanterns are invasive (have a tendency to spread throughout the garden and beyond), so choose your location wisely and perhaps contain them in pots as show above.
