Re: HYB: help - chilled seeds, germination

I thought I might just comment in passing that seeds-- of whatever  genera-- 
which have a requirement for chilling do not necessarily always  also 
germinate at low temperatures. Also, it seems to me that all the  TB seeds being 
complex hybrids, it is well to expect varying responses--even  among podmates-- to 
any system of conditioning reflecting their varying  needs or preferences for 
germination. Also, whereas some seeds have very  restrictive requirements for 
germination--typically those produced in small  numbers in severe 
climates--many sorts of seeds will respond to several forms of  conditioning, and their 
requirements may change depending on the age of the  seeds.
