Hello All,
A good way to start the new day: reading your tips, with a cup of coffee! Thanks.

Wonder why NZ nature didn't create to many geophytes; maybe the climate is too comfi for them so plants do not need to go dormant?

Ina, I looked up the names you gave: Kellydale looks woth to visit, beautifull pictures of the Leucojum autumnalis! Joy plants also has a nice website with interesting plant names. The other places I coudn't find with google (Daffodil Acre only a PO box). More tips are welcome: overmarsjw AT

And.. seeing the pictures of the Scottisch Rock Garden Club Forum I decided to bring my Nikkon Macro objective :-)

As you now know Jan, it is not native bulbs which you will see much of, 
but there are some bulb people who would be of interest.

There is Tony Palmer of Kellydale, North of Auckland

Terry Hatch of Joy Plants, South of Auckland

Bill Dijk of Daffodil Acre, Tauranga

Anne Murray of Collector's Corner in Nelson

Dave Toole of Invercargill

These are just some of them.

If you are interested, sent me a private email and I can give you some 
email addresses.
