 >>I read a comment somewhere that indicated rot and other disease problems could not be bred out of TBs. <<

I'm delighted to hear that there is one more hybridizer to add to those already working on indestructable TBs!

I believe you're on the right track in letting Mom Nature cull the weakest ones. The best path is to listen to all of the information but to follow your own instincts. 

Don't be discouraged if some seedlings are slow to bloom. Quite often, the most interesting ones are the slowest. (Some of mine from crosses made in '92 only showed their first blooms last season. I'm still waiting on others.)

Don't take the "experts" too seriously. Remember that as long as humans and not plants are writing the books on plants, there will always be some mistakes and ommissions. 

I keep trying to imagine a book about humans as written by plants.... :-)
