> 1)You may also request seeds that are still available from SX 1. I’ve

> 
> 2)We’re including comments from the donors for SX 2 items where they

> It is better to FORWARD this email to the above address rather than 
> attempting to REPLY to it as your reply will probably go to the entire 
> PBS list, and since my mail program will sort private replies ahead of 
> replies to the list, this will cause your request to be processed later. 
> As requests are filled first-come-first-served, replying to the list 
> will reduce your chance of receiving items that are in short supply.
> 
> You may request 1 or 2 packets of any item. Specify the quantity (1 or 
> 2) and the item number. Please also include your shipping address. When 
> you receive your seeds, you will find enclosed a statement of what you 
> owe the PBS treasurer ($2.00 US per packet + shipping).

> Grimshaw, it was collected in 2002 on Sani Pass, near Sani Pass Hotel, 
> remained a single crowned plant with only very few offsets but has very 
> small white flower on long tube but the leaves are very large and 
> beautiful, a large clump of it must be spectacular. No other 
> Zantedeschia was in flower at this time so the seeds should come true. 
> There is a second clone which is less vigorous and has not flowered so 
> far. It definitely behaves like a summer grower and has been hardy with 
> a good mulch so far. Also it does not mind hot summer weather whereas 
> the widely available form "Crowborough" never performed with me, it went 
> dormant in hot summer weather. I will sow some of the seeds myself to 
> have more plants of this beauty.
