I noticed PatA indicated she had a progagation database that she picked up a few years ago. I have been searching for this and haven't found anything. Would you mind sharing the info or where you found it?

Dawn, here's the bad news the data base I refered to is no longer available or at least every link I find for it will not open it up. The original address was http://home.sol.no/~asles/methods.htm I have tried on numerous occasions and just can't track this down. The person who created the data base is Asle Serigstad from Norway. The data I did manage to save was from 1997. Maybe Librarian@icangarden can give a shot at trying to track this down for all of us In the mean time I will keep trying too and update you all when I have something! :-(

Dawn, just goes to show you never give up. I was just searching again using the name of a co-author of the database I refered to and large as life the info we ALL desire so much appeared!!!

The web address is http://tomclothier.hort.net/

there is tons of data from perennials to tree and shrub propagation and everything in between.It is truly massive... 314 pages of info. I'm going to take a sleepless night and print it all before they go astray again! HAPPY PROPAGATING TO ALL PatA :-)

Thank Pat. The info for perennials is quite detailed. I was a bit disappointed in the annuals though. I'm looking for something that will tell me that it will take, for instance, 8-10 weeks from germination to flower. That way I can plan when to start my annuals. The last couple of years I've had a tough time just going by what the seed package says. Telling me to start them in February might works great if I lived in Vancouver, but it doesn't work here in Red Deer. If it told me I needed 8-10 weeks before last frost, that is more precise.

Well hey Red Deer. That makes all the difference in the world. Come see me at Parkland Nurseries where I work and I have a 'Recommended Seeding Chart' that our greenhouse manager put together based on what he does and when. I'm always at the info centre (just not on Tuesdays, my day off from now until the busy season ends) I'll bet we have already met but just don't know it! PatA :-)

Pat - I've added the germination database to the Links area of this site. It can be found in the categories of Cultivation, Propagation, Weeds and Pests as well as in the Gardening with Annuals and Gardening with Perennials categories. It looks like a very good database so lets hope the site doesn't disappear again! Thanks for letting us all know about it!
