Vojtech Holubec photo gallery and 2011-2012 seed list

As I work my way through Vojtech Holubec's seed list of exotic wonders, how can I resist when I see these amazing photos?

Lori - thank you for that link. I had been searching for Holubec's seedlist but had an out of date site. Really exciting but I've already spent quite a bit with Mojmir Pavelka!!

Yes, I'm just going through Mojmir Pavelka's list too, and having an even harder time restraining myself!  He has the most extensive list of Gentiana I've ever seen.  The list of Salvia is incredible too!

He has an astounding list of Primula!  His website (http://www.pavelkaalpines.cz/) not yet been undated with the 2011-2012 list and I only have a paper copy at present (given to me by a friend), but I have e-mailed to ask for a pdf of the list and for permission to post it here.

I received my seeds last week!  :) :)  Now I'm busily going through them and, in many cases, guessing at the best way to try to start the seeds.

That seems to be the way with many of these less commonly grown things-- not much information around!

Yes, it's hard to find photos even of some of them.  Good thing there are the seed vendor websites... which were, needless to say, the original enticement to buy the seeds anyway!
I'm going on generalities... I assume Brassicaceae and Asteraceae are probably more prone to easy, warm germination than many other families.  Is that a reasonable starting point?  (If they don't germinate in a few weeks, I'd put them in the cold room for chilling anyway but time will tell.)

I guess all you can go on are generalities when the species are not listed anywhere! I'm going through some species myself- googling, finding some on the Ontario Rock Garden site, and starting to go through the Deno downloads... some are not to be found-- if possible I try to find any species closely related-- though who knows if even that helps?
