Question from Dave Jones

I have always used my fridge, with varing success for seeds that need stratification, keeping strict records of my sowing regimes (a throwback from my botanic garden days). When surfing around the web to obtain information on the different requirements of seeds to get them to germinate, I came across an article about Gibberellic Acid and how scientists in Japan have developed GA-3, a powder that, when mixed with water, makes a solution that can be used to break the dormancy of seeds that require "a winter", thus negating the need for stratification. Apparently it can also be used on old seeds to get them to germinate.
Has anyone else come across GA-3 and is it available to amateur gardeners or is it just for the trade?

Evergreen or Deciduous?

Question from Maggie Brunger

In your description of Abelia chinensis you state that it is evergreen and then that it is deciduous. Which is correct?
