Have Phy. nigra Black, Chusquea Gigantea, and Phy. Nigra Henon seeds. Free but you pay shipment cost. Send private email if interested. Seeds are recently harvested. Too new to have germination info. Rgds Fred

I'd be up for it, as I like to try my brown thumb on exotic seeds (this summer is my third try at sprouting teak nuts), but I'm definitely in the wrong neighborhood for these varieties. Cheers!

The lightening storms that caused the fires in California came in to my area last Saturday. Although I was able to ship the seeds on Monday, it was clear some local shipping might be impacted. I have not had any mail for a couple of days as part of the city that I live has been evacuated. Most of you shd have recvd the seeds. Let me know if you don't have them by this coming Monday.

I've been wondering about you Fred, my place in Esparto is about 4 miles away from flames but I think they may not move our way.

Hi Fred,

Hope things are OK with you fire/smoke wise.

I got seeds this weekend, hope to get some planted today. Will report on germination rate.

Has anyone planted these and got germination? It has been over two weeks since I planted and have seen no sign of sprouting from the three types.

I have only had my seeds planted for about a week, but I haven't seen any signs of life yet.

Mine too - I'm using the paper towel method and no signs of life yet. Started the process on September 3rd.
