Der Bill and all,
This is a good idea.! A have a few species which I have been sowing every year
in quantity ad are now becoming avaiable  in thousands.   Examples are
Amaryllis belladonna, Scilla peruviana, Tulbaghia violacea,  Narcissus
tazetta,   Allium tuberosum,  Romulea, Sparaxis and Tritelea species. I will
create a section in the website "special offer fo naturalisation wiuth smaller
bulbs" They will be much cheaper and  les expences in postage.
Thanks for the idea
