Dear Ina, I keep on trying to send a messaage to your other email address about the crocosmia bulbs and getting back those 'undeliberable to this address' things. Is it full of spam perhaps?

Subject: [pbs] Southern Hemisphere Saffron Crocus bulb sources

I know it is grown here in NZ, and there seems to be quite a bit about it on the Internet.  Perhaps this site might be of some use.


Weird request (but there is so much knowledge residing in this group, I told my friend I'd try asking):

Does anyone out there know of commercial sources of Saffron Crocus bulbs (Crocus sativus) that are in the Southern Hemisphere (Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, etc.)? A friend of mine wants to purchase somewhere between 1000 and 10,000 bulbs to plant at a farm in the southern hemisphere and doesn't want to have to attempt switching hemispheres. (Unless the wholesale price of Dutch bulbs is so cheap that, even with losses, it would still be cheaper to do that than buy them from a southern hemisphere source.)
