Trillium grandiflora "flora plena"
« on: June 12, 2018, 06:48:18 PM »
My Trillium - Ian Christies finest -has now got too big for its allocated space. It produced 15 flowers and is now growing under a nearby Rhododendron.  When is the best time to lift it and can I safely separate the plant as my daughter covets it !

I have been splitting mine today and potting them up till I can find a space in the garden. They don’t seem to mind. Saying this it took me years to pick up the courage to do this.

I've just received this message from a  Czech grower - can anyone help him?

Dear friends,
I would like to wish you a nice Christmas and New Year before. My great hobby is the cultivation of plants in my garden. Plants grow for their pleasure not for sale. My favorite of the plant kingdom is in my garden the game lot on which I grow plants of the genus Trillium. Among other cultivars, I also have different clones of the genus Trillium grandiflorum var. "Snowbunting: I found on your website a photo of the plant called Trillium grandiflorum var" Flore Pleno ", which I have been very pleased with, and I would therefore like to ask you whether it would be possible to get two seedlings of this plant and under what conditions I'm sorry to bother you like this but as a plant friend you will understand it when something keeps you so you show the effort to get it Thank you for your understanding and with many greetings
