Thanks Darren. I am struggling a bit this year and to think that last year was a much colder winter, still sun is out today so bulbs will be a lot happier.

Ah yes, again I am reminded that the year has changed!  :-[


I think that Angela has her plant frost free... is that right, Angela?
That would make all the  difference I think. I feel so bad about my frozen bulbs.  :(

You should have tried Albuca nelsonii instead. I have just learnt it is extra hardy.

Gethyum (Solaria) autropurpureum was hardy for me, without any frost protection at all, for 8 years. It survived -15C in 2009/10 and flowerd, last year it was killed  completly. It is not hardy for the worst a British winter can do but certainly doesn't need to be "frost free"; as mine were frozen into the plunge (without adverse effects) most winters.
The seeds I had saved are growing strongly so I hope to have flowers again in a couple of years.
