       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'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/item) (cash, check,
or Pay Pal to <Arnold@NJ.rr.com>; no money orders, please) you should send
the PBS treasurer to defray our costs for packing and first-class,
priority-mail, or international postage.

From Dell Sherk:

1. Seeds of  ???  Ten years ago, I acquired seed from two experienced bulb
growers, the late Jack Elliot and a gentleman from British Columbia whose
name is lost to me now. One of the seed names was Paradisea liliastrum and
the other was Anthericum liliago, but I don't know which is which anymore.
Both have survived and bloomed dependably in my garden for many years. One
has bloom stalks  3 ft/1 m tall and has outward facing white flowers in May.
The other has much shorter leaves  and bloom stalks (2 ft) and also blooms
in May. The flowers on the second one are a little smaller and don't face
straight out (can't remember if they tilt up or down.) Neither plant has
any detectable fragrance to me. These are seeds of the taller one.

From Justin Smith:

2. Seed of Erythrina herbacea (these need to be scarified to germinate well)
3. Seed of Alophia drummondii
4. Seed of Herbertia lahue
