I've only just had a chance to go through my hosta seeds. I've planted some of each variety, but I've limited myself to 12-16 of each which leaves me with lots of seeds left over. All are open pollinated and most are not really special. However, I'd be happy to send some to people if they wish. But since postage is getting expensive, I'll give priority to Canadian requests. I'll package them 15-20 seeds per packet.

What I have available is: (updated April 8, 2012)
Aristocrat - 3 packets
Bell Ringer (stabilized form of Liberty Bell) - 6-8 packets
Blue Ivory - GONE
Cherry Berry - 1 packet (usually produces fatal white seedlings)
Christmas Pageant - 2 packets
Cranberry Relish - 1 packet
Fire Island - GONE
Frosted Dimples - 3-4 packets
Gemini Moon - GONE
Halcyon - 5-6 packets
Harpoon - GONE
June - 2-3 packets
Korean Snow - 1-2 packets
Lemon Frost - GONE
Liberty - 2-3 packets
Loyalist - GONE
Paradise Island - GONE
Rainforest Sunrise - GONE
Remember Me - 2-3
Salute - 1 packet
September Sun - up to 7 packets
Summer Breeze - 3-4 packets
Touch of Class - estimated 15 packets

Susan - which ones would you like? Please message me with your mailing address. And because mailing to seeds to the USA is a bit iffy - they COULD get confiscated if detected, but it's not likely), I would not ask you to reimburse me until after you receive them.

Shannon - I never got a private message from you with the address - at least not that I can find. Unfortunately, all the ones you requested except Remember Me and Frosted Dimples went pretty quickly. This is what I have left if you are interested in any -

Aristocrat
Bell Ringer
Christmas Pageant
Frosted Dimples
June
Halcyon
Liberty
Remember Me
September Sun
Summer Breeze
Touch of Class

I'm so sorry that I somehow missed your earlier request. Please send me a tree mail with your address ASAP.

Leslie - glad they arrived. I didn't send them all at once so as not to draw attention to them. As far as payment for the postage, don't worry about it. I used a lot of reclaimed stamps so am only about $1.50 out of pocket for ALL the seeds I sent out to the USA. Just pay it forward sometime. And I'm not accepting any more orders after this one - will turn any remaining seeds over to my local hort society sale. Susan - you too if you haven't already sent it.
