Transplanting Flower Bulbs

transplanting flower bulbs
  • Remove (living tissue or an organ) and implant it in another part of the body or in another body
  • Move or transfer (something) to another place or situation, typically with some effort or upheaval
  • Replant (a plant) in another place
  • transplant: the act of removing something from one location and introducing it in another location; "the transplant did not flower until the second year"; "too frequent transplanting is not good for families"; "she returned to Alabama because she could not bear transplantation"
  • Taking seedlings from a seed bed or container and planting them where they will grow to maturity. Brassicas are usually transplanted (because they need more room when they grow to maturity than they do when just germinating). Root crops generally grow poorly after transplanting.
  • In agriculture and gardening, transplanting or replanting is the technique of moving a plant from one location to another.

Transplanting Human Tissue: Ethics, Policy and Practice
Transplanting Human Tissue: Ethics, Policy and Practice
The use of human tissue for transplantation is becoming a billion-dollar business. This book is the first comprehensive exploration of the American tissue transplantation industry. It traces the chain of distribution of musculoskeletal tissue (e.g. bones and ligaments) and skin from the generous donation of grieving families to its transplantation into hundreds of thousands of persons each year. Commodification, commercialization, and the occassional use of tissue for "cosmetic" surgery have raised ethical questions about the acceptability of "markets" in human body parts that have been altruistically donated by families. Inevitably, questions about the informed consent and the need for responsible stewardship by the industry have been raised, often in the Press.
The book provides a comprehensive background to these ethical problems by explaining the historical development, breadth, and organization of the tissue industry, including the technical developments that have made it simultaneously clinically relevant and an attractive market for investment capital. It explores the similarities and differences in how government regulates other tissues and solid organs (such as hearts and kidneys). Contributions to the book come from an interdisciplinary group of scholars, industry representatives, government regulators, and not least, families who have donated tissue from their dead loved ones.

...wanted to share another of my favorite color of Iris from the garden...oh, who am I kidding, they are ALL my favorites!....=-).... The name “Iris” comes from the Greek goddess of the rainbow. The bearded Iris blossom is made up of three upright petals called the standards and three drooping petals called falls. The beard refers to the velvet strip inside the flower. Their rhizomes, oftentimes called 'bulbs', (What is the difference between a rhizome and a bulb, you ask? Rhizomes, as in Iris, are horizontal underground stems; Bulbs, as in onions, are underground stems with swollen storage leaves), love to bask in full sun, although part shade is acceptable. When transplanting, the leaves should be cut in an upside-down 'V' formation to about 6" or so in heighth and the rhizomes should be placed on the ground with just the root tendrils covered so as to prevent rotting and decay. Oh, and the leaves you see behind this shot are Daylily leaves. My Mother-in-law always told me that after transplanting, the first year the Iris 'sleep', the second year they 'creep', and the third year they 'leap' don't be discouraged if they don't bloom right away. I have had some that actually took 4-5 yrs. before the first bloom, but it is well worth the wait! =-) All views shown here are best viewed in LARGE size...=-)

Standing about 7-10 cm high, the flower itself is little more than 1 cm wide, but strongly perfumed! There's a small "field" near my home where they used to form a huge yellow carpet . About 10 years ago, some "vandals" discovered the area, and dug up every plant they could see - I suppose, to sell in pots. Not very sensible, because it is the wrong time to transplant such bulbs ...... For several years in a row, these people came back, and the whole area would look as though it had been ploughed. Luckily, the young bulbs without flowers escaped - the leaves look like fine grass - so some survived. But for several years there was no longer a yellow carpet except round behind a rocky outcrop (the "vandals" hadn't discovered that the patch continued!). I suppose that as there were so few left after their attacks, these people decided it was no longer worth coming back to dig up the flowers .... and the daffs are now spreading back over their patch! Not a thick carpet yet , but definitely a yellow glow to the ground!
