Dr. Griesbach's Tetraploid OT Seeds

lila888(Z5 IL)January 18, 2011

Last Sunday, I've attended Dr. Griesbach's lecture at my local lily society. He gave away some lily seeds and I got more than enough for myself that I am sharing some with you, my fellow lily enthusiasts. I have here 10 packets of seeds with 20 seeds/packet. If interested, please post here and then send me an email.

A few lilies bred by Dr. Griesbach:

OT Robert Swanson

OT Leslie Woodriff

OT Robert Griesbach

My apologies to Ms. Ramona Titus for 'borrowing' her RG image.

I was sorry to miss the lecture. I was planning to go, but had a "surprise" appendectomy a few days before, and could not go.

Lila, I've never grown lilies from seed. Is it hard?

Linnea,
Sorry for the delayed reply. Sorry to hear about your "surprise". I hope you feel better now.

It is not hard to grow lilies from seed. If you want to try, I will send you some seeds from Dr. G and some of my trumpet and asiatic crosses.

lily55rjw, I got your envelope. Will send you some trumpet seeds also.

Lila, I just saw your offer. I have not been on the forums, so I did not know you had replied to me. If I want to try some seeds, what do I need to do?

Are you going to the Lily Society spring sale and meeting? It's March 13. I volunteered to work, not sure if they need me, really, or not. There weren't that many customers last spring.

That's great he was successful with his OT crosses. My OT crosses did not germinate.
Where was the lecture?

Hello everyone, I apologize for the late reply. I was away for a while and just got back yesterday.

Linnea, I missed the spring bulb sale and the two lectures. I will PM you.

Nancy and Charlene, I still have some seeds left for you. PM me your addresses.

Cheerpeople, the lecture took place at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Hi,
Any seeds left? I used to be a member of the WI/IL lily society, but I never hear from them anymore. Would love to try growing lilies from seeds, if you have any left. Thank you so much for offering them.
