.... We have some pots of this in flower : I’ve put it on a web page as I do not know how to post photos on the wiki, we think it is Drimiopsis kirkii but would like confirmation as we have no pictorial references to go on  – (see page) I’ve also put a pic of scilla lingulata var ciliolata which you don’t seem to have

If that method of supplying pictures works I’ll see what other plants we have that you might like pix of as we have allsorts coming on in our collections here at Exbury.

For those of you interested in nerines, ours here are just throwing bud spikes and we look forward to a splendid flowering season, auguries are good! and we are more than ever convinced that temperature fluctuation between day and night is the trigger for this to happen.  I’ve got as far as creating a comprehensive database of the collection which we hope we will manage to get on-line one day!

Best wishes
