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

Pieter van der Walt
