HI David, here's the Eagle Seeds stuff re sowing times. But I think it's maybe more appropriate for commercial growers? Tempted to try a few, just to see if I can get some blooming in my gh for April...
Ah, I didn't read that item, he does say late September and these are cordon grown and under cover until flowering.
Worth a try if you have the facilities, Figrat, although I would say be careful if you only have a small greenhouse...temperature fluctuations are amazing, even in the winter. Eagle's greenhouses & poly-tunnels are huge and don't suffer from these fluctuations.
I would add further that the plants referred to are grown for seed purposes. This seed is then send to New Zealand where (under contractual arrangements) are grown on for seed production.....then it is imported back to the UK and this is in fact the seed you buy from them.
