Hi All,
I don't post often, but sure have done my share of lurking.  Thank 
you regulars for making this such an interesting and educational 

Concerning planting of seeds.  I know some of you will think 
I'm lucky for living in the good old midwest (zone 5 in Missouri) in 
the good old USA. You see, I have the best of all seasons;Winter, 
Spring, Summer, and Fall. All I have to do to plant my seeds is 
prepare a good bed with alfalfa pellets and fertilizer dug in when 
it's too hot to do anything else.  In the Fall, around Thanksgiving, 
I take the dried seeds from the refrigerator, plant and cover loosely 
with straw.  Then I set around the fire place and read the iris 
magazines until after the January thaw at which time I check to see 
if little ones are coming up.  I keep the straw on them until warm 
weather comes in (Mar, Apr. May)at which time my germination rate is 
pretty good.   I am a amateur hybridizer and have a serious case of  
iris disease.  

Does anyone else have trouble growing Beverly Sills and Mulled Wine?  
I have replaced both 3 times and will not replace again.  I'm just 
wondering if it is me or them!
