<I thought I'd do a four-way trial....I'll have enough seeds to go
several ways. Wish I was in zone 7! Mary Lou, near Indianapolis, a
solid zone 5.>
Apologies if you already have thought of this, but keep in mind that
different crosses (and unfortunately, individual seeds within one cross)
will possibly/probably respond to your treatments in different ways. So
we will need to split the seeds from each cross among treatments. Most
of my crosses are wide and seem to produce less than full seed pods, but
I should have 20 seeds or so from each of my crosses. I will experiment
with 6 or so seeds from each cross - unfortunately, that may not give me
any seedlings if I have my usual low germination rate.
If anybody has about 100 seeds from an individual TB cross (which brings
up another topic that I will post separately) that they'd like me to
experiment with, I'll do it ('normal' outdoor late fall planting vs
summer chill, soak, & start early, then overwinter outdoors).
Good luck Mary Lou - be interesting to compare notes here next year and
the following year.
