One problem with an organization like Geneva picking up the Botner collection is that there have been, occasionally, errors in the cultivar identity, where cultivars grown from Botner scionwood turn out to be (clearly) something besides what was labeled. A private collector with lots of cultivars can be excused a few errors, but a large, formal collection doesn't have so much of an allowance. The management of such a large number of cultivars can be a nightmare, which might be possible only with a very dedicated grower such as Botner.
