In 2009 I bought a few seed crosses from LA

One bag never got sown and has been languishing in the fridge for 8 years as I couldn't bear to throw them out. Sighing!

I have decided as an experiment to put them in a pot of seed compost outside to see if anything happens-unlikely after 8 years I know but in the name of science it has to be done. Rolling on the floor laughing

The cross is Imperial Impression X 05-068

The seeds were collected 7/6/09
And sown today 12/8/17

If anyone recognises this cross and can tell me what 05-068 is I would be extremely grateful! Thank You!

Just a guess but maybe the row5 and seedling #68?

Thank you,

Yes, that might be the explanation. Never thought of rows and numbers.

I was wondering if anyone recognised it as their own system and just maybe knew what the seedling was like--bit of a long shot I know after so long. Can't remember who I bought them from and the seller might not even be on here.

@scatterbrain
Go to your "My Won" list on the Lily Auction and search for Imperial Impressions. It should turn up, unless it was a bonus.

Let us know if they germinate!

I tried that, Ken, but it only lists ones after 2012, these ones come up as not listed as they are too old. Thank you, though!
