Patented African Violets
A few months ago, I purchased a few sets of Optimara violet leaves from Selective Gardener. I'm aware that many of Optimara violets are patented.
My question is, am I allowed to sell/give away the babies from these leaves as long as I do not propagate any further?
I e-mailed Selective Gardener a few weeks ago, and asked the same question, but I have never received a reply. (Sigh.)
Also, do you know any patented varieties other than those from Holtkamp? Is there any way to know which varieties are patented?
