CULT: Line out strategies.

I'm having better luck germinating seeds this year than I have had
before.  Naturally, this has me thinking about how and where to line out come
spring time.

Could I stir up a little conversation about the mechanics of
lining out?  I'm interested in how you manage space, how you prepare the site,
labeling strategies.

I'm also interested in some feedback from big breeders
about how and when you use new re-selects in your breeding programs.  I have
noticed that there are often offspring in the pipeline when a new intro hits
the market so I guess you must decide fairly early who has breeding
potential.  Also, I wonder about the logistics of using plants that are in
potentially diverse locations within expansive seedling beds.
