Starting from seeds

I have a large crop of Colchicum seeds maturing on about 15 different 
species and  hybrids.  I have never been successful in germinating any 
of them.

I'll be sending a batch along to Dell in the coming weeks.  There may be 
a new variety in among the seeds.  Many of the flowers are open at the 
same time in fall and the ants crawl all over the flowers as some of my 
photos on the Wiki Wiki demonstrate.   I can't say if they actually 
pollinate the flowers or just feed off the nectar.
