Maybe a nursery? Whoever the florist buys her flowers from?

I know there are some people who freeze damp seeds, but the thought still makes me nervous. I guess it can't kill them, since damp seeds are burried under snow in many climates wirthout killing the seeds! I always read about chilling them in a fridge.

I guessed that no one would want to insulate heat IN, unless they lived on a mountaintop. But maybe they would try to insulate it OUT?

That was how I felt about my (only) Delphinium. I killed many seeds in soggy germination trays, then fed MANY seedlings to slugs. Finally ONE Pacific Giant delphinium survived, and then it thrived.
