Dear All,
       The items listed below have been donated by our members and friends to be shared.
  If you are interested in obtaining some of them, please email me PRIVATELY at <>. Include "BX 350" in the subject line. 
        Specify the NUMBERS of the items which you would like; do not specify quantities. It is a good idea to include your snail mail address, too, in case I don&apos;t already have it. Availability is based on a first come, first served system. When you receive your seeds/bulbs you will find, included with them, a statement of how much money (usually $2.00/share of seeds or $3 - $5/share of bulbs)(cash, check, or Pay Pal to <>; no money orders, please) you should send the PBS treasurer. Postage and packaging charges are added.
     Many of you are subscribers to this pbs elist which is free, but are not members of the Pacific Bulb Society which has a yearly membership charge. THIS BX OFFERING IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO MEMBERS of the Pacific Bulb Society. If you are not a member, consider joining so that you can take advantage of future offers such as this. Go to our website: <> 
         If you would like to donate seeds or bulbs/corms to the PBS,(Donors will receive credit on the BX for the cost of postage for their donations.), please send CLEAN, clearly labeled plant materials to:
Dell Sherk
55 W. High St.
Salem, WV 26426
Non US donors should contact Dell for instructions before sending seeds.

Dylan Hannon has donated a batch of seeds that have been in cold dry storage for a considerable amount of time. Our hope is that those of you who receive these seeds will keep a record of germination rates and share it with the rest of us via the list. Our hunch is that, when some kinds of seeds are properly stored, they may retain viability for much longer than common wisdom dictates. Most of these seeds come with provenance information and the date of collection. ONE packet which contains a generous number of seeds is available of each taxon. $2 per pkt.
