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.
