Morning Luit!

Great to see the plants of our friend growing so good on his fields.
Would be great to see more photos in the next weeks. Many thanks!

Okay, here are some more pics.
First some Crocus and for those complaining not getting the bulbs(plants) showed in a catalogue I start with one, of which the Dutch Crocus Committee decided this week as being wrong. This happens everywhere.
That doesn't mean of course that I like it.

Crocus korolkowii Mountains Glory (wrong)
 Crocus korolkowii Number Twelve
 Crocus korolkowii Number Twelve 
 Crocus korolkowii Spring Cocktail
 Crocus korolkowii Yellow Tiger J
 Crocus sieberi Firefly
 Crocus sieberii ssp. atticus P.C.N. '93
 Iris hircana Talish JR
 Iris histr. George v.T.'92

There are a lot of bulbs that given good growing conditions will multiply very well.  What does he do with his 'surplus' bulbs?  Has he room to expand or is it a finite area.  From the picture of him planting his bulbs it does seem a vast area.
Is he known throughout Holland

Arthur, this area is part of appr. 2 - 3 Ha and will shove every year a little. The land is ploughed and the beds are made in advantage by a tractor.
Some surplus bulbs get sold now and then to plantlover-groups for a plantstall with special interest in having something special and the good names to the bulbs. (Also in G.B.)
And when he is planting  he puts the surplusbulbs aside, they go as special mix to an exporter. But the whole is a
non-profit business.
The man is known as Committee Member for Tulips and Narcissi in Holland and he is often invited to the RHS DAFFODIL AND TULIP COMMITTEE.

Luit

Thanks for info - wouldbe great to be able to obtain some of the surplus, but I do understand why he would not want to get involved - too time consuming.

Look forward to more delights as time passes.

Many thanks for your time.

Narcissus Little Spell
Today and yesterday were good days to make pictures. I was thinking about making pics. once a week so early in the year. That seemed to be wrong thoughts.

Today I found out that the 3rd picture of Narcissus Little Spell got misnamed.
It should be: Narcissus div.I Y.Y. Miss Muffit 
Here is a new picture.

There is more to come soon!

Lots of Crocus to see in the Collectio, and some others as well.

 Crocus biflorus Miss Vain
 Crocus biflorus ssp. weldenii Fairy
 Crocus candidus subflavus

Hi Luit !
You're quite busy on this Monday morning  ;D
That C. chrysanthus Herald looks very good indeed and it's one I have'nt heard of before.
Would you have another picture please, I love the colour contrasts.
