Thank you Linda. I have lots of Roscoea now, many still in pots from when I potted them on. They are really easy from seed. I managed to put a group of three yellow R. cautleyoides in to the raised bed east of the greenhouse yesterday. I am trying to cut down the number of well grown seedlings which have been left in their individual pots and neglected this past year.

never tried them from seed

They are really easy from seed. I have not managed to collect any seed from mine but I will be going to the SRGC Late Bulb day at the Edinburgh Botanic Garden next Saturday and will get you some if there is any left. Otherwise it will be wait until the next round of Seedex. This is the only one I have in flower but I might have missed seeing others. At 20p a packet it has to be the bargain of the year. Which ones have you been growing. I decanted and planted three R. cautleyoides, yellow ones, into the garden the other day. I have three purple cautleyoides waiting to go in too. I like the flowers but they also flower at different times which I like a lot.
