Pretty! Is it a climbing sp? Do you mean flowering 6 months from seed?

Roland ,(and others),i been given a little gibberellic acid to 'play' around with.Having not used the stuff before i'm wondering how successful it will be on old Colchicum seed.

Cheers Dave.

I would do a test if you have enough seedsone without glibberinea weak and a stronger solution
