It is small, but none the less, I am excited to see my first camas bulbs from seed. They are really easy to grow, I just need to be patient to wait for flowers.
Wonderful. I’m curious about your methods. Did you grow them in containers for this first year? And will you plant them in the ground this fall, or tend them in a more controlled environment until they’re bigger?
In my experience it takes about 3-4 years to get from seed to a flowering plant.
I corresponded with Matt Davis from OSU (see link below) who recommended that I sow one seed each in the Ray Leach cone-tainers and keep in the tubes for two years. So that is my plan for these, I will out plant the bulbs next fall. I am really excited to be adding more camas to the property. And thanks for letting me know your experience on time to bloom. It seems like a long time, but I know it will go fast. I am planting more seed this fall as well, so will get in a cadence on bulbs to out plant.Matt Davis OSU camas research
This looks like a good resource for camas-growing. Thanks for the link.
