Dear Members living in the EU

The last round of this year's spring exchange is now open for orders. The time window for ordering will close on Monday, May 1st at 24:00 Central European Time.

Every fully paid member of the PBS with a postal address in the EU can order from the seeds and bulbs on offer. You do not need to be a donor to be entitled to order. There is no limit of how many positions from the list you can request, but you are only allocated one portion of each item. Please refrain from ordering "one of each" of the offerings.

Please send your request by e-mail directly to Martin Bohnet, who is the director of the EU Bulb and Seed Exchange. Please do NOT send your request to the forum, these requests cannot be served. Please make sure you do not use the reply button when sending your request.

Martin's e-mail: garak@code-garak.de
Orders will be accepted during the four day time window after the list went online, closure will be announced in the forum. Distribution will then be at random so that everybody has the same chance to get the rare items in short supply.

Each portion of seed will be charged 2 US $, each portion of bulbs will be 3 US $. For very big/heavy/rare bulbs this may be doubled. Postage will be added at cost, converted into US $.

Payment for items from the EU-BX can only be made by PayPal in US Dollars to the PayPal account of the Pacific Bulb Society. Please make sure that the PBS receives the amount due in US Dollars. Please go to the bottom of the Bulb Exchange page and fill in the details and continue. It guides you directly on to your PayPal account. No cheques or credit cards can be accepted. Enclosed in the order, every recipient will receive a payment slip showing the details, please wait with any payment until you have received your order.

Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Uli Urban:johannes-ulrich-urban@t-online.de

Dear All,

Here are some comments on my donation for the current bulb and seed exchange.


Amorphophallus atroviridis:
Rare in cultivation. Beautiful deep green divided foliage with a pink picotee edge. Mottled leaf stalks. The flowers are relatively small and pale yellow, no evil smell, not really interesting. I had no seed set. Flowering tubers do not produce a leaf in the same season, the tubers on offer are not of flowering size. A striking foliage plant. Easy to grow in a warm spot with good light out of direct sunlight. Summer growing with dry winter dormancy, increases fairly well. 

Dioscorea discolor: plant the tuber as soon as possible on arrival and give gentle bottom heat. It will still be slow to sprout but without bottom heat it will take ages. Once started it will grow fast into a vigorous vine with beautiful foliage. Give good light to get good leaf coloration. Fertilize and water well, increases in number and size of the tubers. From Bolivia. Makes a robust house plant on a suitable trellis. Will go dormant fairly late in the year, keep completely dry then, otherwise it will rot. 
Pictures in the WIKI 

Oxalis elegans:
From Ecuador, summer growing and winter dormant. Beautiful colour combination of deep pink flowers, a green centre which is surrounded by a deep purple ring. Attractive foliage as well. Some bulbs were given to me more than 20 years ago by a friendly gardener of Göttingen Botanical Garden. I have given it to as many people as possible. So I could get it back after I lost it. With others of my summer growing Oxalis it succumbed to a fungal rust infection towards the end of summer when the weather turned damp. That was before I moved to Portugal. O. elegans is slow to increase and does not like hot conditions, so I am not sure if I can maintain it in Portugal. Give it full sun but make sure that the pot does not get hot. It seems to be very rare in cultivation.

Oxalis stipularis or decaphylla.
Received very many years ago from a friend who collected it in Mexico but without a name. Summer growing and winter dormant. This one is easy to grow and makes a very attractive pot plant. The foliage is the interesting part, very finely cut into many branching segments. Small pale lilac flowers. Increases easily. Rare in cultivation as well. 
Pictures of both of these oxalis are in the WIKI

Dear Members living in the EU,
In a few hours' time the spring EU Seed and bulb exchange will be closing (at 24:00 Central European Time) So you still have a few hours to place an order.
The next exchange will take place in September and will be announced through the same channels. Please do not send any more items to Martin until further notice.
Once you will have received your order from this spring exchange, you will find a payment slip included.

Happy growing and have a great summer!
