A question to hybridizes.

I have more seedlings than I have a place to replant.  As all hybridizes know when you keep one seedling bulb for a few years it becomes multiple bulbs.  All the seedlings I have are of show quality, but unfortunately I don’t have enough of any one cultivar to name.  What do you do with the good seedlings while you wait for them to increase?  Can you “farm’ them out? I gave up my large lot when I moved from Maryland and now have less than an acre to deal with.  It restricts the “land” that you can use.

I would appreciate your expertise on this matter. (Other than stop hybridizing so many seed.)
