Sorry, I left this vague.  The seed won't be in the ground.  I will plant 
them in pots, approximately 25 seed per pot, and go into the ground next 
spring as transplants.  I wish I had the cow trough from the farm where I 
grew up to keep my pots; unfortunately, it was buried a few years ago. I've 
prepared the space this fall so they can go into the ground in the spring, 
before it's too hot and in time for most of them to make bloom the first 

The few 99 seedlings were planted in May this year, and watered with a soaker 
hose during our drought.  Most have several increases and look promising for 
spring.  There's an EDITH WOLFORD cross in these.  EW was the pod parent and 
one of my best reblooming seedlings is the pollen parent.  The seedlings 
appear to be the strongest in the group, but winter can make a difference.

I used a lot of West Coast rebloomers in the past.  My theories worked, but 
this may explain the tendency toward weakness.  This is not to say that all 
my seedlings have been weak . . . quite the contrary.  With my line making 
theory, I have often saved only the strongest. Our different climates may 
also explain the difference.
