My wife is dropping off the camellia sinensis var assimica (tea) plants at the OSU Plant Clinic in Corvallis today. I had shared a couple pictures of them in the May 4th posting. I'd like to figure out what is going on with the seedlings prior to ordering in the new seeds.

Hopefully, I'll get at least 1500 seeds planted this spring ... well, early summer anyway. All three seedling samples that I sent to the clinic seemed to have long and healthy looking roots over a foot long. Great for the seedlings, more difficult for me to plant. The seeds have done well enough that I would like to direct sow them on the hillside, although a year or two of winter cover may be needed.
