Many alpines are only obtainable by seed...some need a stratification (cold period), some don't. It is often a hit and miss thing. If you are wondering how to germinate a specific plant, here is the place to inquire.

The first of the NARGS seeds to germinate are the alyssum stribinyi ---- an alyssum from
Bulgaria. It was sowed outdoors in a container.

I agree that many Alyssum species are very fast to germinate with no fuss.

The NARGS seed list for 2011 is on line.
My goodness! over 4500 items!
That will take a few cold days in January to peruse!

Any interest out there of propagating by cuttings/division/offshoots?
