In this case it sounds like Nyssa sylvatica is an exception -- you get much
better germination with constant cold temperatures.  And since it's Mike
Dirr's favorite tree and he's spent years trying to find better ways to
propagate it, I figure he knows what he's talking about.  ;)

That sounds confrontational -- it wasn't meant to be.  I'm just tired.  The
boiler guy is here and gave me a $500 quote for repair.  Ack!
