Thanks, Mike. It is a perennial problem for me, limiting the number of new
bulb species I can get seedlings from each year. 

I have had success with fresh seed sent directly by friends from elsewhere
(South Africa and Australia). I have also had Australian seed (not from
bulbs) last for years with decent germination rates. I am talking here of
seed that is not of the known difficult sorts. The sources of seed have all
been good. The degree of freshness is more variable, I suspect. I am not
referring to members of the Amaryllidaceae, which if sent fresh, is never a
problem, I've found.

But, my ears remain open for gems of wisdom.
