Books and Key for seeds

Dear Sam,

About a year ago we talked about adding when plants would be in growth so 
those people who were starting seeds from the BX would have a clue about 
the right time to start them. At first Dell included the key and it would 
probably be good for him to add it to his standard message. People who were 
donating seed were asked to tell Dell when it grows as he can't be expected 
to know about all of the things we all grow. Alberto has often kindly 
supplemented the information when lacking. If it is sp. seed that could be 
summer or winter growing, then only the donor knows.

(W = winter-growing; S = summer growing; WE = winter-growing, evergreen)

We discussed our favorite books last December. You can check out the posts 
in the archives.…

I think what you buy depends on where you live and what you are interested 
in. We all have various favorites and books we use a lot. From your 
introduction I am sure you'd want to have Harold Koopowitz's Clivia book 
for a starter. If you stay on this list and get hooked on growing things 
from seed you will find that there are a lot of books that you will want to
