Hi Michael and all,

>>>>>I have also been trying some crosses with various Nerine sarniensis
cultivars.  Very little success so far, although I may have achieved a few
using the Nerine as the seed parent.  Won't know until they bloom.

The same has happened here this year but with Nerine bowdenii 'E. B.
Anderson'. The seeds look good but I'll have to see if they'll germinate.

Does anyone know anything about Sanders and Sons Nursery ?

Presumably an old UK nursery, and one that was going at the turn of the
previous century, around the 1900s. I've just received an Amaryllis
belladonna 'Sanders Form' with provenance dating back to 1906, and to this
nursery, so obviously I'd like to find out a little more about them.

Best Wishes,
