Hi Joe,
Your'e idea is a great one.
I am  certainly happy send you pollen from Australia as/and if it becomes
available. I have some Crinum and quite a few Hippies as well as Lilium and
others. The good thing about this is that you can store it away and use it
as you need it.
Lillium pollen stores quite well and there is a Lilium pollen bank in New
Zealand run by their Society and it is shared all over the world.
BTW, I've just joined your new group with no problems.
