Hi Adam,
Francis Rogers who is a local Hybridizer, has always held his seeds a second
year.  In fact he sifts the medium out and replants in new medium.  See my
favorite intro of his attached.  Mrs Loving in the second picture after
three nights a heavy rain.

Wow!  Congratulations!
So, you're saying that last year you only had 3 seedlings sprout from 2
pots.  This year, you have more sprouts by waiting another year for the
seeds to germinate.
How many seedlings are sprouted so far for just this year?
Just out of curiosity, how cold do winters get down there in Kentucky?  Here
in MI, (Zone 4ish) it was 20 below zero F for about a week in Dec/Jan.  I'm
wondering if that would HELP my seedlings germinate . . . if not, I may plan
on holding pots over an extra year.  Or just make sure that I put all the
left-over soil from the pots in the same row I line out my seedlings in.
Hoping for answers.

I've just spotted my first sprouts of the 2005 spring! They are not from 
the 2004 crop but the hold over pots from 2003. Yes, there are more sprouts
the 1812 pots! 

But I'm most happy about 1 1/2 dozen new seedlings from 1810. These pots 
(2) produced 3 seedlings last year. One didn't grow and the other two put up

fall stalks, one being that beige over pink (1810-1RE) that I posted to iris

photos last fall. Blue amoena seedling X LIGHT REBUFF. The seedling 
contained Victoria Falls, Vanity, Immortality, Glistening Icicle, Latest
Champagne Elegance, & Feed Back. The seedling bloomed in a mum pot, and
the pod (52 seed) in that same mum pot!

Linda, these are some of the 2nd year pots we were talking about. It will 
be interesting to see how these look in comparison. Not sure if three last 
year will be a good enough comparison!

For those interested in sprouting techniques, I plant my seed in mum pots 
between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then I wait for spring. Once again, I 
didn't have mulch, and I did find a number of seed had surfaced in the 2003
Not so in the 2004 pots. I pushed them back down, otherwise they will not 
sprout. Hope they sprout since I don't really want to hold over for a third 
year. (but probably will)
