Barbara, it would be hard for me to be critical enough to evaluate new seedlings. I'm too likely to find some redeeming quality of all of them.

When you have a bunch of seedlings taking up space, it's easier to cull some of them as you look at them and compare them to what's out there.

True. I know traits like weak stems that fall over consistently would be a deal breaker for me- no matter how pretty the bloom is, they don't look good laying on the ground!

Hmmm -- yes -- well I assumed they were *Japanese* Iris -- but aren't there different kinds? (she said sweetly)

She is still listing them. I also planted bellflowers and many pansies in the fall, but none came up this spring. I had saved half the seeds and will plant the rest of the ones from the fridge now that I know they can do well in little pots.

Is the person selling on Ebay a ATPs member? I have been wanting to add a white one. I have a couple purple ones.

Thanks for the link, Linnea. Interesting -- so is she saying that you will get seeds of each of those colors?

Gab,
Tom started this forum on his first seedlings, I'm sure you will find some great information here.
