Narcissus albimarginatus

Even Kurt Vickery said last week on FB that he has trouble in pollinating
albimarginatus. It would be great to cross those clones. I must admit that
I would be most pleased to swap some of the resulting seeds. I have two
bulbs from him, but still too young to flower. I would be happy to swap
pollen in following years.

I live in a city on SE Spain, we have few rainy days or even dew, and
flowers are normally dry. Wild plants obviously get moist in the
countryside but I think it is better to wait until flowers are dry. Anyway
all you have to do is wait until the anthers release the pollen and take
some with a toothpick, then onto the stigma.  I have had good results doing
this on flowers that have just opened, but as you know they last for some
days and the receptive window is quite wide.

Good luck.
