Re: seed auction


From: "J.F. Hensler" <hensler@povn.com>

>>Many hybridizers end up with more seed than they can use, would folks be
interested in purchasing (or bidding upon), seeds from a known cross??  Other
plant societies have seed auctions/sales..... maybe this would be something
entertaining for the iris folks.<<

Neat idea IF those who purchase the seed would agree to keep records and note the hybridizers' name if any are registered.

It's the one really big gripe I have with the sale of daylily seeds. Not only does neglecting to list the name of the hybridizer interfere with true records of a plant's background, there's also the feeling (mine anyway) that the practice is decietful and gives a false impression of what the person introducing the plant has accomplished.
