Seed Swaps

Amaryllis hybrids    

I have probably more than a 100 pots of these lovely bulbs – I say pots because many of them have more than 1 or 2 bulbs in them, I may have nearer 200 bulbs (never kept track of the exact number as they increase every year!)

All of these bulbs are grown from my own seed that I obtained by cross fertilizing 3 unnamed bulbs I’d bought at least 4 years before in a street market. From the resultant seeds I sowed very many germinated & I grew them on till they flowered for the first time 4 years later.

Since then the great majority have flowered every year & have increased in number.
