The Scottish Rock Garden Club....... For People Who Love Plants
Packet arrived for me today of NARGS seed... all neatly labelled. Why there is resistence to a labelling system here I cannot understand. Saves the stress of deciphering handwriting and would be so much simpler for the import regs. "Sigh!"
A predetermined number of labels for each offering is printed in advance, before the actual seed packing is done. I can't tell you what the actual methodology is, but that number is (mostly?) based on the number of requests for each particular offering in the past. This is absolutely wonderful! No more guessing how many packets to make: if there are only 10 labels, there is no need to make 25 packets!
Hi Rick, does this mean that the only surplus seeds that will be available will be seeds that nobody had listed as first choices?That if there were say, 300 seeds of Campanula barbata for example were in the kitty and two people asked for them that they would get half each?
