The N. jonquil “Early Louisiana” seed that I said were available are not dispatched to the recipients. No more of this type seed available.

Still cataloging the miniature bulbs.

    Hi,

    I spoke hastily, I was getting ready to plant seed when I ran across large batches of seed that I don’t have the space or the desire to plant.  I know I have two more batches of the N. jonquilla “Early Louisiana” if anyone wants them.  I will list others in a couple of days.  What I’m giving away is mostly open pollinated seed.  These are not my crosses that I made this year.  Various strains of jonquil and bulbocodium.  Both are prolific self pollinators.

    Please wait until I post a list of seed that is available – free.  I do have a large bunch of Open Pollinated Seed on Big Baby 10Y-Y standard Bulbocodium.  Too many seed to plant, but to get these will take a negotiation.

    Hi,

    I can’t even give seed away. I’ve only had three requests.

    But I learned the hard way a couple years ago when I couldn’t give away N. jonquilla “early Louisiana” seed and took the batch and threw them back into my daffodil bed that I had dug them out.  I roto tilled the area, replanted a large number of standards, and the following sprint was surprised with a large bed of seedling jonquil. Those seed are tough to withstand roto tilling and bed shaping with my shovel and rake and still spring out of the ground.
