I self pollinated the flowers today, does anybody know if these hybrids
come true from seed? Nerine can be apomictic (setting seed without
pollination which is genetically identical to the seed parent) but I do
not know if this also applies to complex hybrids.

I have never had seed on my Nerine Zeal Giant. N. bowdenii just 3 metres away forms copius seed without any help on my part. I remember seeing many Zeal Giant at RHS Rosemoor a few years back. Do they have any seed, anyone?
Mine came from Avon bulbs I think.
