Re: Glaucidium fresh seed question

Thanks so much Gene.  I'm going to try some myself.  Anyone else want some
Glaucidium seed?  This is a peony relative from Japan with gorgeous flowers.
I also have some Fritillaria radeanna seed (like F imperialis but pale
yellow flowers, no bad smell, a tad shorter) if any one wants that.
