Hi Narda & etcetera -- re: Embroidery seed-pod setting, fertility, and seed
sprouting? -- I have transplanted seedlings from H. Embroidery this year, so
not only does it set seed-pods, but these seeds also sprout plants!  On a
finery note of importance regarding hosta seed-fertility, well firstly, seed
must be fully ripened, in order for the seeds to have sprouting capability;
and you knew that.. right?  If someone is already selling seeds on Ebay from
Embroidery's pod-parentage, and if,  this seed happens to sprout NO
SEEDLINGS, then be assured: that this seed was collected before it was fully
ripe?  The seed-ripening-process, takes a minimum of ten weeks, after
pollination, for seed to become fully ripe, [er so I've seen  (a Doctor Ben
Zonneveld quote?)]
