Okay, I have seeds for skirret, a garden perennial root veggie.  To call
them seeds is an exaggeration.  They look like a pinch of soot.  I know
you're supposed to mix fine seeds with sand for sowing, but I think these
skirret seeds could all cling to one grain of sand.  Does anyone have an
alternative method of sowing such fine seeds?  thanks very much, Margaret
