I think this is an excellent idea Kathy. The smaller hybridisers often 
don't grow all their seeds, simply because they don't have room. They 
may be making carefully planned crosses well worth growing. A particular 
cross may fit in well with someones future plans, and they may not have 
those parents available, or their cross didn't take. For people like 
Patricia who would just like to grow SOMETHING, I'd be happy to send 
some of my surplus. I have decided 1000 seedlings is my limit, and am 
busy culling at the seed stage, so I only plant what I most want to see 
Remembler, obtaining a seedling from a big hybridiser doesn't 
necessarily put you 'ahead' with YOUR breeding program, even if it is a 
superb seedling, as it is part of another persons program. It is often 
worth the wait to buy the best introduced cv available to fit your own
