As you recall, the contest is to see which species is ready to transplant into my garden first. We've got English Daisies, English Lavender, Painted Daisies and Gold Dust Alyssum. The seeds were planted on October 15. The race is reaching a fevered pitch and the gambling has begun. Here's the current oddsboard.
Painted Daisies 2-1
Gold Dust Alyssum 3-1
English Lavender 5-1
English Daisies 10-1
