I think they have been doing that most/all of the year haven't they?

Anyone remember from last year if they have an even-more-off period? I fancy trogging up there if & when they do :)

p.s If you're lucky, come the winter knockdowns you'll get them cheaper. I've had them for a pound a pot at our local. icon_thumleft
Ok will do :)

[quote="Kristen"] Worth asking on here too (in the Casual Sales Forum) as folk may well have some seed they can stick in an envelop for you


Hmmm , To be honest I would feel a bit cheeky doing that as I haven't been on this forum very long...


Maybe next week :lol: :lol:

They can ignore your request, or suggest a price, or just send you some in an envelope gratis. People have been generous to me and I have usually had little or nothing to offer in return.

I can certainly recommend Bomarea hirtella..................

Very easy to germinate, just be patient. Bloomed at about a year old for me and is still blooming in the unheated greenhouse today.

That's a nice one LongK, I do like these Bomarea. I only have boliviensis, a non-climber which proved hardy for me this last Winter to -8, with flowers not long finishing icon_cheers
