    The following was received via email:

    I've been surfing on the NET, trying to find out how to propagate
    magnolias using their seeds. So far I have not been able to discover how
    to. Do you think that you and/or your fora could help me? I have six
    beautiful almost 20 ft Betty magnolias - the kind that produce large
    pretty magenta pink "cups" before any leaves grow. They produce hundreds
    of seeds annually but try as I may, nothing happens. If I took and
    planted as many cuttings - a propagating method which works - as I have
    seeds, I would be left without trees.

    Je te souhaite mes meilleurs voeux, Rui
