Thank you, Jane!  And Carol and Ellen too for their help.  I'm just back 
from visiting Timber Press's website. Very impressive! Lots and lots of 
links, as you said -- also when you're visiting, check out their Weekly 
Wisdom, exerpts from quite a few of their books. I especially liked the 
one from CREATIVE PROPAGATION re starting seeds, specifically their 
responses to water.  Since I am trying to plant year-old iris seeds, 
this was one of the things I was looking for, tho the author was talking 
about annuals.

Thanks to Carolyn, Diana and Kay for their input re my little seed 
project. I will find some sand. Kay, I enjoyed your Gardenia account 
very much! Guess I could add the vinegar to regular MiracleGro. But they 
won't have to be fed any more this Fall, probably.  Sorry that my irises 
have to be in 4 gallon pots this year--they have plenty of room at least 
until I can transplant next summer, and we'll mound dirt around them for 
the winter.  Our plans for terracing the 5 acres are a little behind 
schedule! Once that's done we can plant to our little hearts' content!  
(This winter I am being consoled by lots and lots of just-purchased baby 

Cheers,  Barb Johnson   ljohnson@cland.net, USDA zone 5b I guess.
First frost for sure Saturday a.m.--33 degrees forecast for Springfield, 
and we'll be about 4-5 deg. under that.
