Hippeastrums my Passion
I fell in love with the plant about 20 years ago starting with 4 bulbs.
I imported some from USA, Purchased some from local importers and came to know some local Hippeastrum fans and started my own breeding programme.
Since then I sow seeds every year and sort them 4th year.
Seed sowing May 2012
Seedlings of May 2011 From Misc 2012
Seedlings of May 2010 (a few bloomed this year)
From Misc 2012
A few Seedlings of 2009 (all bloomed) From Misc 2012
Most of my bulbs get transferred to my Arches hotel gardens and only a few selected ones are at my house.
Way back Sir, Hans cautioned me that it will not be possible for me to grow presentable Hippies. I am happy that I continued.
