It was definitely up at 28 all the time I was there last, (2 months).  Hardly a day of cool in that, and humid with it.  But i was inland a bit, Abbotsford to be precise.  But I watched the forecasts every day and it seemed to be the same heat everywhere, even on the island.  And that wasn't my first trip there either, whenever I'd been out there it was too warm for me.  I'm much happier at 18-20 myself, especially for gardening.  Can't do anything when it gets too hot, all I want to do is stay indoors and drink cold drinks....

Sharpshooters are a kind of insect which carry/spread Pierce's disease, a fatal disease of grapevines. It is widespread from Florida to California (where we import grapes from) and also in central America I think. It is called Xylella fastidiosa and it is this pest that any bulbs I import from Tassie must be specifically free from, on the phyto cert. Marcus has to guarantee, in writing that the bulbs and his nursery are free from it. I doubt if it is in Australia or we wouldn't be able to import from there at all.

I'm with you Chris, 21-23 is perfect for me.
Except indoors in Winter.

Lesley, they sound horrendous.
Am surprised they haven't wiped out the Californian vineyards.
Hard to believe anyone free of the pest would risk importing anything that they could piggyback in on.
Or is this a WTO ruling?

It could well be, on the basis that the grapes are inspected as they arrive but even the most stupid of us know that about 1 in 10 or 1 in 100 crates of fruit or whatever else, is inspected.

Lesley,
I think that's the same argument that the apple growers here are using! ;D

I guess you're right Fermi. If we're to remain friends perhaps we'd better talk of alpines, not apples. ;D ???

Just back from my trip it thimble farms! Some amazing hellebores, edgeworthia, rhodos, bulbs and spring ephemerals. So much fun!
I am not obsessive when it comes to plant shopping, I just want two of everything....

! It is certainly my experience that the western trilliums are realtively easy from seed, but I haven't great experience of growing eastern species.
I have no problems in growing  the eastern species from seed. Indeed they do it by themselves. However, not those from the very south parts. Those I cannot grow at all. Not necessarily because they freeze to death in the winter - they seem to need higher (soil?) temperatues than I normally have.

To stress my belief in growing plants from seed here are a few potfuls of trillium seedlings, chloropetalum and kurabayashii, conservation at the level of gardening!

The discussion diverged to North American trilliums, so Maggie put all the trillium
discussion into a new topic.  I think it is "Trilliums 2012".  Obviously a remnant
remains since you have responded and it is happening again.

No, wrong title.  They got put into "A tempting nursery in British Columbia"
