You mailed your payment so I sent yours a couple of days later. Somehow yours made it but the 4-5 that I mailed together on a different day are still out there somewhere. I meant to send you those D. Capensis seeds as extras. The albas in the white paper look like Holyhock's writing.

I'm glad at least you have received your seeds. Thanks for letting me know.

Ok so these are all supposed to be mine? I just wanted to make sure you didn't accidentally send me someone elses. Thanks

Yes, they are all for you. You should be able to grow a capensis forest with those seeds. I started with one Alba and now they seem to pop up everywhere.

Hey guys, just a heads-up:
I was just looking up info since I have D. pauciflora seeds, and it seems that the seed of winter-growing species does not germinate reliably under normal conditions, since the plants normally undergo a summer dormancy where there's often fires.

From what I've found people have done two things to germinate these reliably - the first is hot stratification where you keep the seeds in the packet and bake them in the hot sun on a windowsill or such for several months. The second is smoke / ash treatment. There were some mentions that the cool growing season has to be long enough when the seedlings come up as well, or they'll go into dormancy.
