Re: SPEC: rare seeds


After I saw your post about the apline garden in Czech Republic I order one
too. He told me the only Iris seed he had left was I. flavissima. He did
have some seeds for sale beside irises.
The SIGNA seed list was real good this year. Did you see the brevicaulis
that was 12 inches tall? The one I was interested in was I. maackii. But my
main interest in the I. pumila section.
I have some seeds already up that I planted November 27. They are in the
house. I also have I. formosana getting ready to bloom in the house.
The weather is bad here. We got 12 inches of snow on December 13. It has not
melted yet. About every two days a another cold front comes in. The
temperatures have been in the 20's and teens during the day and at night in
single digits since December 10. I am tried of ice skating to feed the
animals. We have been getting wind chills of -20's and -30's during the day
and night.
