Ian when you sent me some some bulbs of I. 'Froyle Mill' last year you accidentally gave me a bulb of your new selection. Can I keep it? Can a, can a, can a?

I'm finding the flowers of 'Froyle Mill' very top heavy or maybe the stems are too thin. Is this normal?

NICE. Have you been nibbling petals again?

Mark I sent nearly every one some 'Froyle Mill' last year so you may not be alone in finding something a bit different.

My Froyle Mill has become contaminated with self sown seedlings so anything may appear - enjoy. :) :) :)

Week floppy stems is a problem in low light levels.
