Tom, it is Ian Pryde (forumist shooglypeg) who compiles the notes for the Easy Ten.... he is also the chap who gets all the boxes of seed ready to go out around the country to be packeted  and so on......  8)
A thoroughly good man, I'm sure you agree  ;D


Indeed. It seems I'm in his debt on more than one account. :)

My seeds arrived on 23/02/12.  Thank you very very much to all the seedy guys/gals! 

All have been planted according to recommendations found in Ian's Bulb Log and other sources as needed.  Only had one mishap, when clumsy me tipped over a pot of Cyclamen mirabile 'Tilebarn Nicholas' into the potting mix.  Found all but two of the seeds and used the rest of the mix for potting other species, so if the two come up in something else at least I'll know what they are.

I planted the Galanthus (nivalis and plicatus) seed halfway down the pots, then filled with potting mix and topped with pumice.  Since they were dry seed, I soaked them in warm water with a little dish soap for about 24 hours.  Most of the information I found, only mentioned fresh seed. Do they need to go in the dark or can they stay out at room temp in the light?

Having received mine over a month ago now from SRGC and a couple of weeks ago from AGS, already there are a few things coming up. It's an exciting time once germination starts, something new every day at present, especially in the warm but damp weather we are having. Salvia cyanescens this morning, Primula (that stunning red candelabra) yesterday.

And others too. Michael C. sent me some seed of Carpentaria californica Ladham's var, which I thought (forgive me Michael) couldn't possibly be fertile seed, it looked like dust, the grey kind that accumulates on my bathroom floor after a few days without hoovering. I only sowed about half but there are at least 100 up so soon. We are planning a hedge along the road front where trees have been taken down and Roger thought native Pittosporums, but I've decided on the Carpentaria. Much nicer. ;D
