I did get those seeds from the 'open offer' last year, being not a member of
PBS. They arrived in a quit bad condition being germinated from a while and
the radicles were twisted and entangled and the leaf very etiolated.
The mass of 'white worms' was gently extricated and were potted in a deep
pot to allow those radicles to be put in the right way. The first leaf
quickly died but was promptly replaced from a new one, which grew fine.
Lated, the seedlings gained size and have never been dormant (always outdoor
in full sun) in not for a couple of weeks in June. They are watered now and
then and got a liquid fertilizer, the kind for flowering plants(low in
nitrogen). Now they are strong plants, some with 4 leaves and a small bulb
of 1cm (half inch).
So far all fine...but the way is long !
