Please don't sit on my hostas. I don't remember that conversation.
You may have been talking to someone else and thought it was me.
We often trade or give plants to friends before they are introduced with
the provision that they not be distributed without permission. Everyone
has their own idea about how the giftee should treat them, but in my case,
once I start selling a plant on the open market you're free to do what
you want with it. Though I do consider it in bad taste under those
circumstances to undercut my prices.
By the way, that was funny.

alright had to catch a couple of winks. Hey Sergeant Pepper and Satis--
Sat - i uh, that other one , are really great plants. What
will you give to the market next. I seem to remember a conversation
by the way in which I told you I had been 'sitting" on ( obviously I am
to old to stand on ) your two plants for a number of years, and did, in
fact ask you for approval to sell them. I know no one is out to steal
my plants, they are just out to make a buck at my expense. They no
doubt understand that as old and feeble as I am, I will not be able to
defend myself. I am pretty sure I had more to say on this, but ??your
"fading" friendRa ??? N

I'm sorry Ran, I forgot that you are getting old and all this plant
breeding and evaluating seems like such drudgery to you. Many of
us who are still in our prime consider it to be the most fun you can have
with a hosta. I
