I agree with your listing of ethical planting and I think is mostly followed. I say 'mostly' as seedlings not good enough for registration are sometimes sold to box stores. I think that there is less of that going on.

Our seedlings have been 'shared' with our introducers; one for 3 yrs & the present one for two. We are lucky in having someone to do this as we could not take the work involved. Also when we did it ourselves between the 2 gardens we sold only 3 plants. We have seen the troubles other people had by working with honest, but inexperienced people. We had to bring the registrars attention to the fact that a plant had been introduced & belonged on the ballot because the hybridizer did not send notice. You would think it would be caught as the ad was in the AIS Bulletin but it was not. We have had good luck with sharing pollen; although pollen from a seedling is more difficult to keep track as numbers can be confusing.
