pod ripening

G Hi Glen 
It is nor realized enough that hosta set much better seeds when 
cross pollinated then when selfed I always count the number of 
seed in a pod and nearly always find about half the number of 
seeds in a pod when selfed. Moreover if you have only two or three 
seeds in a pod these ripe faster too. That might explain the 
differences you see.make
Indeed I still apply my 10 weeks rule for seed ripening However I 
found this hot summer seed did ripe about a weeks earlier. I agree 
if you go to the trouble to take them inside it is best to take the 
pods not all at once. Probably the shortage of light slows them
