I got 4 lots of seed from Barry and sowed them 6 months ago.

S. flava 'variously veined'. High rate of germination, vigorous seedlings

S. flava 'B'. Moderate germination rate, mod growth compared to above

S. alata as for S. flava' B'

S. minor low germination rate, mod vigour

These germination rates are based on my recollection that there were
similar numbers of each seed sown.

Has anyone else sown seeds from these seed lots and is able to comment
on germination percentages?

Secondly Barry, are you doing a similar excercise in a few months? If
so, as these ones have gone quite well I'd like to try some other spp.
