Re: Breeders' Rights


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.

 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
