amaryllidaceae

Forget the seed catalogues. Trading seeds is a great way to expand your garden with new plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables, shrubs, and trees.

amaryllidaceae

Postby Ton Wijnen » Nov 05, 2009 4:10 pm

I am a botanist and private collector in Holland. I am collecting Amaryllidaceae. I am searching Hippeastrum species,Hymenocallis species and Griffinia species. Also other Amaryllidaceae such as Brunsvigia ,Ammocharis, Albuca,Boophane,Placea, Crinum, Rhodophiala species are very welcome. I am searching bulbs of seeds of these plants for my private collection. I have also material for trading.
Also I am searching some seeds or seedlings from Cryptostephanus species.


Can and will you help me please?

Or do you know other people in you area who can help me? Maybe botanists or private collectors?

Thank you very much and I hope to hear soon from you again.

Hi Ton,

I will be growing Albuca shawii this year, if they flower and produce seeds would you be interested in some? It won't be until late in the year though (August or September likely) and if no one is interested in seeds I will be deadheading spent flowers.

I am confident they will do well, since I've been told they are relatively easy to grow. We shall see, I've had success with Hippeastrum hybrids in the past.
