Yes Maggi - it is really sad
The most of them had in meantime roots and little leaves
A problem is I cannot store it

Yes Fermi !

You have to speak with your goverment !!!

It was a lot of work to pollinate and later to clean the seeds ...
I do not understand the people ...
It makes a lot of fun to grow plants from seed to flowers ...
For me it seems that the collectors have to much money ...they buy big adult plants - ready
My idea is really not to make buisness ( there are easier methods ) - I think thats are nice plants and they should more distributet

Anyway ...

Hans they are such a fun and such a easy plant to grow. I too don’t understand why you had no takers. If only I had another greenhouse .
I love growing them and that’s thanks to you .

Paul Cumbleton has  just  written in the  forum about  the  fact that there  were  no requests  for  bulbs  he  offered last  year  -  crazy!  I do not  understand  why  no-one  wants  to take  advantage  of  these  great offers - one  thing  I do know, if the  response  is  so poor then I won't  be  holding  back from making  my  own requests  in future- which I have  done  because  of  wanting  members  to have  first  call - seems I've  been wasting  my  time  with that  approach!  :-X

I don't like asking to many times either. I always feel better if I can give them something, I never have anything that I can exchange with and I always think if I offer a wee bit of money they can then buy themselves another nice plant, even if its just to cover the postage and packing. People on this forum are so generous with their plants and I have been on the end of their generosity quite a few times. So thanks to these lovely folks.
