Regarding the list N. Rose sent, I would keep the Calochortus seeds 
until next October at room temperature (not too hot) and plant them 
then. Summer is not humid in San Jose. I've had very good results 
from quite old stored Calochortus seed. Herbertia and Galtonia will 
germinate if planted after receipt in spring. I haven't grown the 
others, which are too tender for my climate.
