Hi Lyn I live in Riebeek Kasteel, Western Cape, South Africa which is in the winter rainfall area and have very successfully raised O. saundersaie from seed. They are summer flowering (S Hemisphere) so you need to sow the seed in Spring. They come from a summer rainfall area and need to be kept dry in Winter. They multiply prolifically and I have also taken leaf cuttings and gotten a lot of bulblets that way too. I keep mine in pots so that I can move them indoors in winter but I have left a few bulbs in the ground this winter as an experiment to see how they will manage the cold and rain. Generally, I find that they're not fussy about soil, but I use a good quality potting mix and add a few handfuls of clean river sand for extra drainage. For sowing the seeds, I use a commercial seedling mix and also add a bit extra river sand. Hope that this helps you. -----Original Message----- From: pbs [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of Lyn James Sent: 16 June 2015 07:38 AM To: email@example.com Subject: [pbs] Raising Ornithogalum saundersaie from seed Does anyone have useful tips about this? Are there particular requirements? I live in New Zealand and haven't ever been able to source this bulb, so I'm trying to produce my own.
