Wow they are gorgeous...have'nt heard of them... learning all the time :)

I hadn't either, Joybells. I bought a lot of unknown bulbs in Lidle/Aldi this spring. At the cheap prices they charge, it's worth trying them.

I found a packet of spraxis corms out in my garage the other day. I have them about 5 yrs and just forgot about them . They look beautiful. But these ones are past their sell-by date. Must get some more. Are they reliable?

Actually they are spelt SPARAXIS 'tricolor'. I bought them for next to nothing when I used to work in Homebase.

You're right about the name, Jacinta. I think I renamed it for my dyspraxic son!

Have been updating on your recent pics, Rachel. You are just SO LUCKY to have all that space. I really envy you. I am disgusted I wont be able to make the get-together. It would be great to know everybody on this site in person.
