Hi
A few more photos from Keira Bulbs.
You will see our miniatures are truly miniature from the photo of the miniature and the bulbocodiums!
Kees where did you get your miniature poeticus?
Lesley, I didn't think Paul's triandus hybrid would draw that sort of reaction!!

Hi
A few photos of the unaffordable!
Lesley I have to agree that triandus splits are not such a good idea!

Hi Graham,
thanks for showing your miniature narcissus breeding results.

N. pallidiflorus ssp. pallidiflorus - that is a wunderful species in my eyes 8).
I like the pale primula yellow color, the large trumpet with its domed edges and evenly the twisted pedals, like little windmills.
Overall, it has a "wild" character.
 
Best wishes
Armin

Hi
A few photos of the unaffordable!
    


Well, that's a rather patronising statement, even if made in jest.  Since I have not been able to see a pricelist/ catalogue from KB, I' ll just have to take it at face value  :-\

 Lesley I have to agree that triandus splits are not such a good idea!        


There is some hope, then, of common sense prevailing? ?  ;D

Hi
Me patronising?  :o If it is an exhibition quality miniature 7W-P that is fertile and flowered for the first time in 2009 it is unaffordable simply because of availability. 8)
There was a mention of wild character. Unfortunately wild character is not one that is welcome in the exhibition daffodil world. :(

I think "unavailable" would be a better word, after all, unless you are in a position to say "no" to someone "making you an offer you can't refuse", they will be affordable to someone? :P

Hi Maggie
That is not our current address as we have moved to the farm. Our customers seem to be able to find us.

Yes, I know you moved, but I thought the list of areas of expertise was a bit whacky!!
I do know that others have got bulbls from you.... and I do not doubt that you have customers who CAN find you.... what I am saying is that I have not had a list from you, and I find no way to view your catalogue online.... always rather unusual in these days.... might it not be in your interests to actually give a link to a list? Gawd knows, even out here in the world of natural species lovers, there may be those who might want to give you some custom..... or are you doing so well you do not wish that?

And you know very well that it didn't! :)

But the effort of producing his prizewinner seems to have  lost Paul to us altogether?

I've been lost for some time Lesley. :-\

This is one of my favourite seedlings ..Melbil x Killearnan.I've used it extensively with Ouse, many poets and most of my other Div 3 seedlings.Perhaps I may have 500+ seedlings 2 to 3 years old, still in poly boxes that need to be rowed out.Div 3 is one of my favourites! :D

Graham, you have produced a wonderful array of genetic material to breed colourful fertile miniatures.A lot of hard yakka and hours went into that, but who's counting when you're having fun :)

Kees, love your miniature poet !!!! It's much superior to mine that I posted earlier, nice broad petals and quite smooth.Do you have a breeding programme going for miniature poets? Mine was a chance seedling amongst standards, but when and if it ever decides to flower again, every grain of pollen will be used!

Well it was actually Paul Tyerman I was wondering about Paul. He hasn't posted for quite a few days, but it's true that many of us are lost; to alpines and bulbs, to the delights of chocolate (without macadamias) to an addiction to seeds or even in the mountains in Valais, Switzerland :)
