I can understand about having to come up with somethng spetacular. I
have just started crossing my scenteds with one goal being an "Orange
Spice " plant but I have only  one crossing of that goal to produce seed
so far . I will have to wait to see if that might have been an
accidental cross with another plant. I do have others in the making but
the same goes with scenteds in that there are so many cultivars nowdays
it's not real easy to get a completely different plant that is

There are a few. Did you see that one Australian site I posted to Mimy
the other day? It was the site of a fellow named Alby. There is a list

Hmmm .... maybe it will help when you get set up at home. International
lines can be touchy sometimes. One place in Autralia I went to see was
not successful the first time I tried. Most of the time I try now it is
somewhat easier. With your home connection, you will beable to try at
different times of the day to find when is the best time to use the
international line from your region.

Thanks for posting the information about the Autralian registry. that
must be a mighty large project. Hopefully someone will beable to finish
it before it needs to be revised :-) .

All for now. Hope all is well.
