Martin Bohnet

The October EU 2022 bulb and seed exchange (BX) is now open for orders, as usual we have a time window over the weekend, ordering phase closes on Monday October 17th at 24:00h Central European Time. The closure will be announced on list and forum. Orders received within this period will be dealt with at random, so that everybody will have the same chance to get the rare and sought after items.

Please read the entire instructions carefully and please note, the the US Bulb and Seed exchanges have different dates but continue otherwise unchanged.
The donation phase is closed until our spring exchange which will be announced in time.

Please remember, that only fully paid members can order from this exchange. If you are not sure about your membership status or if you are tempted to join now, please get in touch with our treasurer Arnold Trachtenberg ( arnold140@verizon.net ). You do not need to be a donor to be entitled to order from this list but maybe you will become a donor in the future? The number of items you can order is not limited, you are allocated one portion of each ordered item but please refrain from asking "one of each" from this extensive list.
As Brexit is now real and all grace periods are over, we sadly can not accept any orders from the UK.
PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS LIST OR THE FORUM WHEN ORDERING BUT SEND A NEW EMAIL or Forum PM TO MARTIN BOHNET IN GERMANY: ( garak@code-garak.de ) He is the director of the EU Seed and Bulb Exchange. Your order cannot be dealt with if you send it to the list by using the reply button.

And please do not forget to let Martin have your postal address.

Pricing and Payment

Seeds are 2 US$ per portion, bulbs cost 3 US$. Very big or very rare bulbs may be more expensive. Left over seed from previous exchanges (numbers EX04_??? and EX03_??? ) are offered at a reduced price of 1US$. Postage is added to your order at cost. Please wait with your payment until you received your order, it will contain a payment slip with the sum due in US-Dollars. If you are a donor your credit will be deducted.

Payment for the EU BX can only be made in US Dollars and only through PayPal. As PayPal has changed the conditions for foreign payments, you MUST go though the Pay-Pal payment form on the PBS website. Please go to the bottom of the Bulb Exchange page and fill in the payment form at https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbsforum/index.php?page=BXpay It is a tremendous help for our treasurer if you do not forget to put in the BX-Number and your name. Please wait with payment until you have received your order.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Uli if you have questions ( johannes-ulrich-urban@t-online.de )

Nerine Special:
For this EU BX we have a very special offer as a once only chance. Nick and Lionel de Rothschild have generously donated  a large number of bulbs from the famous Exbury Nerine Collection for the EU BX. https://www.nerines.com/. On behalf of the membership we express our gratitude.

I (Uli) have visited the greenhouses at Exbury in September and although it was too early to see the flowers it was very impressive. Lionel de Rothschild and Theo Herselman, the gardener in charge showed me round and shared their  enthusiasm for these bulbs.
All bulbs on offer are Nerine sarniensis Hybrids. At Exbury each clone gets a number at a certain stage, it is worthwhile to keep the clonal number for future reference. There are also many bulbs which are a mixture of non-numbered clones. No further information on the clone numbers is available, so you will receive a surprise pack.  At Exbury, there is a continuous breeding and selecting process going on.
Nerine sarniensis is an obligate winter grower and does not tolerate any frost. The bulbs do not like root disturbance, at Exbury they are pot grown and repotted every 3 or 4 years only. The bulbs on offer are not of flowering size.
As they are about to sprout, they need immediate planting on receipt, best after an overnight (but not longer than that) soak in water at room temperature.

In this special case we allow multiple orders of the Nerines - you will receive at least one different numbered clone per item of the following EX code number (and likely a lot more as the whole offered set will be distributed - no leftovers!

EX05_474 Nerine sarniensis

Hi, I have been very haappy (and a little stressed) to participate in donation.

Just some info on some of my references, I know I am offering far too many dicots than would be expected, but I just can't see fruiting plants and not collect some seeds. Anyway I have an interest in some of them being available, for conservation purposes:

- EX05_461 'Prenanthes grandiflora ex Querol lake Andorra' should read: PINGUICULA grandiflora (but could be vulgaris), etc.

-Pancratium maritimum is from Israel, in case anyone would like to have material from there.

- Acis valentina, I have a permit to collect seeds, but unless needed for scientific research, I won't give the exact location. The seeds are tricky and usually sprout in the following autumn after ripening, and not in high percentages. Then they take 4-6 years to mature.

- Narcissus x perezlarae: I can't give the location neither. This plant has been reported to be fertile and produce viable seed, but I went to two wild stands in two consecutive years and found only one capsule (among several hundreds) with three seeds, these had a strange elongated shape and never sprouted. At home I have hand-pollinated flowers from one population with pollen from another one as well as from different plants from the same population, for both groups of plants, and not one seed was produced. Anyway it has been re-published as Narcissus piifontianus, which should be corrected to piifontii, so you are free to label the plants as you wish.

- Seeds from Andorra: They have been all collected at or above 1700 m, they are all euro-Siberian species, not really suitable for mild Mediterranean climates. All on siliceous (acidic) soil. Some are Pyrenees endemics such as the Gentiana burseri, I was lucky enough to find it in the last hike. I can give locations for all these seeds, some are fairly common plants there, like the Pulsatilla.

- Seeds from Mallorca:

Digitalis minor is a strict Belaric endemic, being possibly the only foxglove which can occur near sea level (though these were found in the northern mountain range of Mallorca, at over 1000 m).  So worth trying in Mediterranean gardens with little or no freezing. It is not a sun loving plant, though, and will do better in a northern exposure or with morning sun only. Grows on limestone.

Hypericum balearicum: a stunning plant when you first see it as it is a shrub up to 2 m tall, with big flowers up to 3 cm wide, aromatic as most or all St John's worts. It can reach 1400 metres on the highest peak in Mallorca, but as it is very close to the sea I suspect winters up there are not as cold as in a continental location, so I don't expect it to withstand less than -5ºC (it grew around the boulders where I found the foxglove).

Lysimachia minoricensis: A remarkable plant, I guess the name in English should be Minorcan loosestrife,  with an amazing story involving extinction in the wild and redescovering of a bunch of plants in what remained of the Barcelona Botanical Garden after the Spanish civil war, then distribution to several gardens and recently a (so far) successful reintroduction in the wild. Flowers are not showy but the leaves have a unique white-veined pattern. Every pot and plot of this plant could ending up being the only extant material, so it's worth trying. Loves moisture, but not as much as Lysimachia ephemerum. Basic soil.

Other bulbs:

- Allium cyrilli: Wild collected by me, but again I can't give the location yet, as it is a novelty for Spain (well there you have some info) and I am waiting for my article to be accepted in a Spanish Journal. I promise to do a more divulgative article for the PBS journal. This belongs in Melanochrommyum section, it grows in areas with steppic conditions: cold to very cold winters and hot summers with occasional thunderstorms. As most other members of the section it has a very short vegetative period, producing leaves in December-January, blooming in April-May, seeding in June and then going dormant.  I collected bulblets from 6 adult bulbs, and I placed bulblets from at least three clones in each package, so I hope seed will be easily produced. Anyway this population develops up to 150 or more bulblets per adult bulb, so vegetative reproduction is ensured.

- Allium aff. longispathum received from a friend ex Sergei Banketov, as A. paniculatum, but I think is is rather longispathum.
- Allium paczoskianum ex Alexander Naumenko, from Stavropol, Russia

Thanks, sorry for the long text!
