My luck in germinating seeds is just that...LUCK. I usually don't
refrigerate any of the seeds of Cape Bulbs. Would love advice from someone
who knows how things should be germinated.
In my inside sunspace, I have grown and bloomed Aristea eckionii (SIGNA
93Z381). It had wonderful blue flowers 3/18-4/20/96. I had lovely delicate
light green/cream blooms on Gladiolus tristis (SIGNA 93Z396). My Ferraria
crispa (SIGNA 94Z258) looks like it is putting up a first bloomstalk. I
have a Dietes iridioides, given to me by Helga Andrews who grew it from
SIGNA seeds) that bloomed last spring with white blossoms w/ blue to violet
Also blooming this year was Belamcanda chinensis (SIGNA 94Z244), outside.
Really a beginner in this!!!
