Thanks Sl, not tried T.azureum yet, would like to try it though maybe next year if I can find some space :o)

Its a nice bulb but hideously skips a season or two, done the tuber but not from seed so I'm giving it a try...

I have never tried from seed ,had tricolour tubers for years until 2010 that wiped them all out.Miss them not seen any offered for ages.

Thanks all, its the first time i've grown these, love the flowers. Do you grow yours in pots Sl?

cheers Brian, i will hand pollinate, having a bit of a problem with mice eating my bulbs at the moment.. all but 2 frits have gone now...

21 Apr, 2013

 

Another amazing plant, would love to try these.

21 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks for the tip on pollinating Bjs, i'll give it a go.
Sl, woodmice are a real pain here they ate all my Fritts 2 years ago, no prisoners taken now!
Dd, if I get some seed you are welcome to some. :o)

Thanks that is very kind of you.....

Don't blame you Ph, I'll have to be like that from now on. I have 2 Frits out of nearly 300 ...

22 Apr, 2013

 

Thats really sad, I only lost about 50 but that was bad enough..

22 Apr, 2013

 

It's my fault really i knew the danger from last year but i still had them lined up in pots on the bench..
