Sure, no problem. I think, once you start germinating your own seeds, you will enjoy it.

Your comments also make me think that we should start a thread to post photos of various natives, as seed, seedling, maturing growth, buds, blooms, and seedheads/seed pods--basically document their whole life would be a wonderful resource for all.
