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

Well, Kitty<br>> If the seeds are tan or brown paper-ery with the bump

freezing.<br>> Gene E. Bush<br>> Munchkin Nursery & Gardens, llc<br>>

This is one of those seeds that needs to be sown fresh. I
