Hi  Hamish,

B. gregarii (-ii or -ia? The leaves are certainly prostrate.) B. natalensis B. radulosa     These three are all small seedlings still and I am not having much luck in getting them moving. Perhaps compost not porous enough. Bring on to surface of compost even though still small? What temperature is best for the winter growth? Mine have to be in the greenhouse.

B natalensis and radulosa are  from  summer  rainfall areas  and  some gregaria's can  grow in  summer rainfall areas. B radulosa is  in growth for  me at  present  having appeared in early  December.  Yours are probably  just dormant.
