Eucomis whichever.
Not sure what it is, but it matters not. Anyone ever tried growing them from seed? Any info would be useful.



Yes I have grown them from seed didn't find them too difficult!

They were seeds I got from the RHS seed sale.

This is what I did;

When I get the seeds off my Eucomis wotnot, I just poke in the pot around the parent plant. I need to pot them on next spring.

My Eucomis seeds are self sown in their third year, skulking under the Jostaberry. I left about 6 there to see what happens to them. 2 bad winters under their roots so far. I'm a bit worried they might burrow down as the bulbs get bigger, so will dig one up to see what is going on with them.

they will go down deeper to about 6". seed is easy and took about 4 years to flower for me.
