Dear All,

     The items listed below have been donated by PBS members for
sharing. If you are interested in obtaining some of them, please email me
PRIVATELY at <>. Include "BX 25" in the subject line.
Specify the NUMBERS of the items which you would like; do not specify
quantities.  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 (cash or check) you should send the PBS
treasurer for your order. This is a charge to defray
costs for packing and first-class postage. It is a good idea to include your
snail mail address too, in case I don't already have it.
    Some of you are members of the PBS discussion forum but not members of
THE PBS. Consider joining the PBS so that you can take advantage of future
offers such as this. Or contact me at
    If you would like to donate seeds or bulbs/corms to the PBS, please send
clean, clearly labeled material to: Dell Sherk, PO Box 224, Holicong, PA,
18928, USA. Donors will receive credit on the BX for the cost of postage for
their donations.


From Roy Sachs:

1. Seed of mixed Alstroemeria hybrids, open-pollinated "There are some deep
purple/magenta and raspberry red colors (as well
as some with less pigmentation that I call "whitish") in a few
seedlings but the majority produce florets in the light pink to dark
lavender range"

From Mary Sue Ittner:

2. Oxalis convexula--tiny tiny bulbs, about seed size. These appeared on the
surface of the soil underneath the leaves. Flowers are rosy-salmon with a
yellow throat. Leaves are numerous, trifoliate, congested. Plant is
cushion-like. Winter growing

3. Oxalis sp. L 96/42 Mexico (Oaxaca) Vigorous and tall plants with
multi-segmented palmate leaves and relatively small pink flowers in bunches
on long stalks well above the foliage, a few small bulbs, originally from
Uli Urban, summer growing.
