> <"Blind Seedling Trial".  What does that mean?

   A blind seedling trial just means the plants are only identified in
the garden by a number or code, never the hybridizers seedling number.
This is so judges will be able to evaluate seedlings not knowing who
they are from. In theory judges would vote for the best plants and the
results published with the hybridizer and seedling identified at that
