Hi

I managed to do a little hybridising before the rain settled in for most of the day. I suspect Bob Spotts got a little wet today if he was off viewing more daffodils.

The giant bulbocodiums dwarf our miniatures. While the flower is huge so is the stem. It is probably Olumbo (one of Rod Barwick’s flowers) x  Clays’ Gold. Olumbo is large and sets seeds for us more readily than its sibling. The stems on the giant bulbocodiums are as impressive as the flowers themselves.

The Jonquilla hybrid is probably fertile.
