J. L. HUDSON,
Packet size/Germination code:
All packets are $2.50 each, unless noted otherwise. The botanical name of each species is
followed by a two-letter code which indicates the minimum number of seeds in the packet, followed by
the average germination rate [example: (c,h)], in this case "c" indicates the packet contains 50 - 100 seeds, and "h" indicates high germination (75 - 100%). Finally there is a four-letter
code plus a number, which is the stock code for that species. Example:
—Anagallis arvensis. (a!,h) ANAG-2.
We are now switching over to a single number, which will indicate the minimum number of seeds in a packet (subject to change without notice). Example:
—Adlumia fungosa. (25) ADLU-4.
We think this will be easier and more convenient for you. We will indicate average potential germination only when it is usually under 50%, such as with certain species that have a high percentage of non-viable seeds (Sequoiadendron, etc.)
|Packet Size Code:
a!! = 10,000 seed and up
a! = 1000 to 10,000 seed
a = 500 to 1000 seed
b = 100 to 500 seed
c = 50 to 100 seed
d = 25 to 50 seed
e = 10 to 25 seed
10 seed and under are numbered.
Packet sizes subject to change without notice.
|Potential Germination Code:
h = High germination - 70 - 100%
g = Good germination - 50 - 75%
f = Fair germination - 25 - 50%
l = Low germination - 1 - 25%
v = Naturally variable germination.
Note: This does not equal ease or difficulty in germinating the seed, but the average percentage that will sprout.
Germination varies depending on the conditions of sowing.
