Hi Fermi, You have started off the month with some nice things. The Gladiolus species looks especially exciting. I have 4 delospermas now, all from Peter and Louise at Hokonui BUT it turns out that they are the extra little epicurean treat the local rabbits have been waiting for all these years. Mine have been grazed down to their roots. I haven't tried them myself but I wondered if the juice inside their succulent"leaves" has a sugary taste. Certainly something is very toothsome to the little grey b........s.

Here's another one - Gladiolus melisculus - which has a great colour but not the violet scent

Hi Lesley,
they don't always set seed.
I think I need two clones and am hoping a second clone will be in flower before the first finishes!
