Transformation of Landsberg by vacuum infiltration

We've been using vacuum infiltration to transform Arabidopsis Columbia for some time 
now. We'd now like to put some reporter constructs into the Landsberg background so 
that we can look at the effect of mutants in the GA biosynthetic pathway on the 
expression of our GA-responsive genes. 

I had heard that Landsberg was difficult, if not impossible, to transform by this 
method, but this was some time ago. Has anyone out there had any experience with this 
strain and vacuum infiltration? Please email/post your negative results as well as 
any successes, and I will post a summary of all responses.
