Two questions to the forum

Dear All,

There are two questions: the first one: does anybody have experience in
growing Albuca clanwilliamigloria? I have a potful grown from Silverhill
seeds some years ago and after first a long growing period and then a
very long dormancy (more than one year) there are leaves again, it looks
as if each bulb has one leaf only. Is there ever any chance to see a
flower? I like Albucas and grow several of them and normally they are
straightforward and flower in a few years from seed. This one seems to
be different.....
Any comments or help?

The other question is off-topic: Does anyone have or know of a source of
seed of the true wild form of Campanula medium (Canterbury bells) There
is a wonderful photo in the Phillps/Rix series, "Annuals" It is native
of the Alpes Maritimes in South Eastern France and neighbouring Italy. I
have not been able to trace it and would be willing to refund both
postage and seeds but would be as grateful for further information. All
seaches done always lead to the cultivated large flowered version which
has lost charm compared to the wild form.......

Thank you very much!
