Hey Jill, the weather isn't that cooperative here ; ))

Rather than relying on standard viability records, you can find out more
accurately what you want by presprouting a few seeds yourself.  Soak 10-20
seeds overnight, place in a damp paper towel, then put them into a ziplock
bag.  The seeds that sprout will indicate your germination/viability
percentages.   If you can wait that long....otherwise, just plant them and
see what comes up ; ))
