I never got into burning DVDs. Too much bother for the reward. Much easier to save up points and get free ones (back when points bought stuff)
I'll focus on cleaning the machine. Our main one is bluray/dvd. does that take the same dvd cleaner thing as the regular dvd players? Or does it need something special?

So if you wanted to have a go at doing something similar, maybe some of my planning will help.
Hi Paul, I just saw this posting from last year. How is the project going? I have similar intentions, but for a different climate (Mediterranean Spain). So far I've been unable to find any Ilex vomitoria plants in the EU. Plenty of sources in the UK, but with BREXIT, doing trade with any of the UK nurseries or seed suppliers (or anything at all) is just too costly and cumbersome.
Have you thought of crossing I. vomitoria with I. paraguayensis? Seems at least the chromosome numbers are the same.
If you have the space you might also want to get yaupon seeds from a range of habitats and cultivars and mass-seed them so you have more to select from. Germination will be slow, so that's why you'd want enough space to leave them to their own devices.
Also the JC Raulston Arboretumin N.C: has been breeding various hollies a long time. Have you tried contacting them?

Great news Henry!
Which supermarket chain did you buy these from?
I'm guessing they've been imported from Spain - is that correct?
