Seed from Jim and Jenny Archibald

Howdy All,

Recently I've been speaking to a few people here in Australia who have
purchased Arisaema seed from Jim and Jenny Archibald in Wales.  Most who I
have spoken with have had troubles with certain species of seed they
received from the Archibalds, and had generally poor germination on the whole.

How have others found seed from this source?  Have others had the same
problem?  I have recently purchased seed from them and now I am wondering
whether I have done the wrong thing, given that others I have spoken to
have never germinated seed of some of the species I bought.

Do we know if there is a problem with the viability of their seed due to
source or storage?

Any information would be appreciated.
