Do you think they're basing their dates on temperatures in towns and cities, which are always warmer ... even here on the edge of the city we're chillier than in the city centre, whereas out in the countryside temps are considerably lower. 

-Encephalartos and Cycas Seeds and seedings vailable for the following species.

There is a website called Garden Focussed where you can put in your nearest town and it will predict your last frost date. 

It says we in Norwich will get our last frost in late April .....

That's what you call gardening 

What's your regime for keeping them. I don't have a greenhouse or conservatory at this house so I'd stopped growing them, but a young relative has started giving me an amaryllis bulb every Christmas and I want to start keeping them again

G'day Pat   Autumn rains eh?  Spring drizzle here

I have had a lot of flowers on one stem, especially from some of the bigger more expensive bulbs, but to be honest I've never counted how many. 

Lovely pic.
