Suzanne, I'd be interested in getting some from you. And your second
question, my Mom used to keep collected seeds in plain envelopes and
cellophane envelopes (used in stamp collecting). In fact we found a
treasure of these in the house last year when my Dad died. We have
envelopes of seeds some going back to the 60's.
