Has anyone grown Dietes from seed? I saw this beautiful plant in Australia, but have not managed to source it here.



Sorry to disappoint you Sheila, I can't answer your question. I'd never heard of this plant before, but now I want them!! They're just lovely - I want to know the answer too. :-)

Darn, I'll bet they're not hardy! :-(

A bit more research shows that someone in Cheshire grows them outdoors, with a bit of protection in winter, so worth a try. I've found six offerings on ebay -

After you, Sheila!

You carry on, Beattie . . . I've never done ebay!

Do you want me to get you some? I see that T&M have one variety for sale, and more expensive. Send me a PM & we could come to an arrangement.
