Dear Pieter

Warm greetings from Cambridge (Boston) Mass. I envy your good fortune to
live in one of the most beautiful places on earth and to have access to so
many fantastic bulbs.

I remember when I was very young, much like yourself, when I was "bitten"
but the bulb bug, only I had to contend with the limited varieties we had
available in this region of the U.S. at that time. Luckily, we now live in a
vastly different and wonderful time where we have virtual access to the
whole planet and a support group of other "bulb nuts".

Welcome to our group.

Hi there,

Like most of you I have been bitten by the amaryllis caterpillar and
contracted a passion for bulbs! I am particularly passionate about Scadoxus
but also grow Cyrtanthus, Clivia, Eucomis, Cryptostephanus etc.

I am fortunate enough to live in South Africa, where I have wide access to
some of the most beautiful bulbous species! I am probably the youngest bulb
enthusiast I know, and the only one in my school!

I would like to use this opportunity to enquire what other species of
Scadoxus you are growing? I have all of the South African species including
a couple of S.pole-evansii seedlings and would love to trade for material of
among others Scadoxus nutans, cinnabarinus and cyrtanthiflorus.

Happy bulb growing
