 Dear Lauw,
I so agree,but it IS amazing what you can get away with when exploiting 
micro climates in your garden!
Snowdrop season is swinging in to gear here!

Dear all,
 This remark of Mary Sue struck me, as it is  also my philosophy "if a plant
 (genus or species)  does not thrive in your garde, don't insist.  The
choice is  so enormous; candidats are queing up.
For example: after having tried 10  species of Fritiliaria only F raddeana
is still  hanging on. My gardening environment is definitely suited for
M├ęditerranean and Cape bulbs. Allthough for commercial reasons I have to
grow  some species from other mediterranean climat areas.

Kind greetings
Lauw de Jager
South of France  where are flowering: Narcissus tazetta 'Paperwhite,
Cyclamen, Crocus,  Amarine, Tulbaghia, Nerine, Oxalis

From: Mary Sue Ittner I've mostly given up trying to grow Fritillaria since
I don't have
continuing success with this genus even though I have gotten some
species to bloom from seed. So many other things are so much more
reliable for me. I have enough success that I don't need to succeed
with everything.
