    Sara, I received this request too and redirected them to a Russian Gardening Blog whose members are growing Mitsch Daffodil bulbs and using DaffSeek.  Unfortunately, I believe there might be a language barrier, because Yuri’s reply was a repeat of a portion of his first message.

    If I may, I am of the opinion that this individual in Russia is actually requesting bulbs and not seeds, as his message states.  It would be quite normal for someone who is not knowledgeable about daffodils to naturally assume that it is a ‘seed’!
