No need to go through each of the Deno downloads for a particular species.  Tom Clothier has done it for you!  He has combined them all into one Excel index, so you only will have to look in one place to see if a species is listed in any of the three books.  You should have Tom's website bookmarked, too.

I had seed from Vojtech Holubec a few weeks ago, for the first time; really exciting list! Like many seed collectors also he is extremely generous giving bonus packets. I have done as described above, sowing some with bottom heat in the greenhouse, on a family basis and from Deno's work (and also the superb advice in the Jelitto catalogue), and others have gone into the fridge (mainly because our winters are really not long and cold enough). I have to admit I resisted the primulas and gentians (!), because they would be difficult to grow in our dry climate - but I may not be able to in the future!

Thanks, Rick-- I did notice when googling a few days ago that there was an index, can't remember if it was Tom Clothier's or not- I didn't worry about it at the time since I didn't have the Deno books downloaded yet, and hadn't gone looking for it yet, since I'm still just skimming the books, but figured I would want that index eventually..

Does anyone here know if Holubec has published a seed list for this year? I can't find it on the web. I still have his list from last year and can order from that if nessesary...but I would love to see a more current list. Thanks!  ;D

I haven't looked yet, but it seems early, his list usually comes out later if I'm remembering correctly..

I'm wondering that myself, as I've made large orders the last 3 years and have not got the notification.... I'm feeling a tiny bit neglected!  (It won't stop me from diving into this seed list though!  ;D ]

Gee, I don't know, since I only ordered once or twice, and that was 2010! Maybe I just emailed more?..lol I'd bet you could just ask him to add you...
