Betsy Mahtani in Oklahoma, who is heading up the Seed Bank, has advised me, 
that email-reservations to herself, are arriving via Internet ***reserving 
the Toyozo Nakayama seed***
                                     IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE ...and...
Frstly, I'm thinking:
                         ..that we may have a misunderstanding of sorts 
here, related to this Japan-connected seed; and therefore, I would like to 
set this record straight, and explain the very nature of this Japanese seed.
          Please be advised, this seed was not collected in Japan by Toyozo 
Nakayama!  It was collected from my 'Japanese Seedling Beds' right here in 
Guelph.  The seed which provided for these seedlings did however, come from 
some very special Toyozo Nakayama seed-collections, done in Japan, over the 
years I've known him (1995).
           All of this Japanese-connected seed, which I will be sending 
into the Oki'Seed'Bank for dispersal, is in fact: the F2 seedling 
generation of plants, grown from the seeds which Toyozo Nakayama of Japan 
so kindly sent me, over the years.
          As a further example; to explain exactly what I'm talking about; 
in a more precise fashion, and using a variety which I've already 
mentioned: (AND A SEED ITEM which is going into the seed-bank in Oklahoma!)

Case in point sample (below?) --  "how the future 
Japan-Connection-Seed-List will be displayed"

CODE-NUMBER  > NAME     > DESCRIPTION  >Objective & Potential

TN.34.99         > AKANE GIBOSHI  (word translations into English)  GIBOSHI 
= hosta.  AKA = red/scarlet/crimson; NE = like.  A hybrid derivative from 
the sieboldii species.  Has reddish-coloring in florets; and was a popular 
hosta in Japan, prior to the introduction on H. Kokuryu; which is another, 
sieboldii derived red-in-floret type.  The flower morphology is 
different.  I believe, Toyozo has shown these florets via 
hostapix@egroups.com list-server? Potential: reappearance of the AKA (red?) 
florets in it's seedlings?  Open-pollinated seed.

I'm not exactly finished with my seed preparations of the Japanese 
Collections yet, but seed of the above sample (AKANE) and possibly a few 
others, will be mailed into the 'Oklahoma Seed Bank' ..THIS 
WEEK!  Quantity: is very very limited; it is sold on a first come first 
served basis, and until it is sold out.  Substitution of similar priced 
items will be made, wherever/whenever an item is sold out.  Price for Akane 
is $5.00 (per 1/4 teaspoon), and I don't know if the Oklahoma Group is 
putting a seed-restriction on quantity one can buy? ..personally, I'm not! 
..and don't care? :)

Once again, this is (filial two seedling generation seed <<F2>>)); taken 
from the F1 hosta seedlings, which were grown right here, from specific & 
special Toyozo Nakayama seed-collections done in Japan.   This is not seed, 
picked in Japan!

Toyozo Nakayama, has kindly given me permission to share seed from his 
seedlings growing in Guelph; and for this, I think we need give Toyozo a big...

   (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((  THANK YOU 
TOYOZO  ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

              hosta sincerely yours
