Germinating Seeds and Scaling Bulbs

I got these seeds from the ongoing NALS (North American Lily Society) Seed Exchange and started them right away. On the left are pink tetra OT x Ice Caves seeds by Peter Geiser of Switzerland and on the right are tricolor tetra OT seeds by Dr. Robert Griesbach.

They are ready for stratification in the fridge.

Here is one of the several packets of seeds I got from a friend in Australia that has arrived yesterday. An exciting cross that is special to him. Starburst Sensation (bred by Dr. Wilbert Ronald of Canada) x Silk Road (bred by Judith Freeman of the Lily Garden here in the US).

And of course scaling some the lily bulbs that I've ordered this spring. The first one is Milden Red Ball bred by Holger Kuehne of Germany, the second one is Eileen North bred by the late Dr. Chris North of Scotland and the last one is Kushi Maya bred by Arie Pederse for H. W. Hyde and Son in the UK.
