	Throwing them away may be my next option.  I am going to plant
some in a 'regular' bed that is somewhat elevated and see how they do.  If
they don't perform there, I will junk them because they are just too much
trouble.  A lot of the flowers don't open properly either, so why continue
to hybridize tets if they have these obvious faults.  I feel now that this
is said I will be bombarded with comments by those who are trying to
eliminate the faults.  But, I feel that since these faults exist, the
buyer should know about them.

	Thanks, Robert.  Your comments from where tet La's were created is
valuable information.
