	I prefer to freeze the seeds from mid August to mid November and 
then plant the seeds in pots on a mild November day and then sink the 
pots in the ground.

	As I write, I have five germinations in the pot of PINK BETTERMENT X
KANDI MOON, three in ZERZURA X TEL AVIV, a few scattered  TB 
germinations and one big surprise of five germinations in the JI 
cross of ROYAL PAGEANT X SPRINGTIME SNOW.  This is the earliest the 
JI's have ever germinated. 

	You better believe that these will be coddled if we should have a 
hard freeze.
