Chick and other Hosta Friends,

I promised in a previous post that I would address the questions about
tissue culture that you raised in your reference post. I must apologize
that I have changed my mind and will not follow through with my promise.
Instead, I have decided to write an essay/article on the subject of
"Culls from Tissue Culture". I intend to answer such questions and
issues as:
   1. What are they?

   2.Describe them!

   3.How and why do they originate?

   4.Who says so?

   5.How frequently do they occur?

   6.Are they useful, valuable, worth keeping?

In witing the article I will try to cover the questions you raised as
well as others that  come to mind. I will "publish" this essay on the
"hosta-open" e-mail forum, addressing it to a wide spectrum reader
audience of hosta gardeners, nursery people, hosta breeders, collectors,
TC Lab operators and others. I will try to use the information that I
have obtained from various sources.

I hope this news and decision, partly inspired by our recent TS and OS
Discussion, will add to your "rare sense of accomplishment".
