Leena  - PM me with your address if you'd like some more taquettii seed.  Always nice too sprinkle some in a gritty trough and wait.

You will have to select for true ones as we have 2 pink muc. v. ciliatum, 1 muc. very tall and 1 muc. x taquetii nearby.  A goodly number from taquetii come true and are easy to recognize.

Lesely should have a forest of them coming along.

Indeed a forest561653-0 and growing fast! they overtook Rhododendron caucasicum which germinated first.
561651-1

Also from Seedx - Incarvillea younghousbandii; slight chance to be true to name but I keep positive for now.

I don't know what happened - the image that shows on top is the Incarvillea.

Thank you John, but the seed ex seeds were so generous that I think there is enough of them already.  :)
I have also other Rhododendron seeds germinating from Finnish Rhododendron Club seeds, from Finnish origin and crossings, but yours was interesting, and I don't mind if there are also taller growing plants. :) The autumn colour of taquettii was special!

My seeds will be sown this weekend, rather late maybe. Im going to be cheeky and ask if anyone has some spare Primula agleniana seed, or where I could get some.

Thanks for reminding me Leena, of the correct name for the Iris sibirica seed. I was lazy and wrote the English translation rather than checking the German spelling. I did keep the packet you sent it in though and will add the correct name as the source of seedlings. Seven are germinated by this morning.  :)

I did get my seed a couple of weeks ago and have planted most of it.  I'm still waiting on my AGS seed.  Not sure it's ever coming.  Sigh.  Really a pain in the you know what having to do the Small Lots of Seed thing.

Very pleased to hear that the US postal authorities have finally delivered Jan's AGS seed.  Better late than never!
