Last time we saw Nigel he was playing with the apples in the orchard maybe he ate too many perhaps he has more sense than to hang about in the rain or they dont pay him wet weather money.

It could be 3-4yrs before your seeds flower ,if they grow at all . Some varieties are sterile and can only be propergated by splitting the corms,You can buy more corms or different colours from garden centres in spring time You can allways edge your bets dry off the seeds(baby corms) cutting  the stalk off with the the seeds and put into a paper bag leave somewhere dry and cool for a month . then plant them arround the mother plant if they grow  it will be a bonus and you will know what they are .and less chance of diggin them up by mistake Good luck

Personaly I use a plastic one easy to clean and sterilize and light enough to be moved  out of the way in early summer when space is needed for plants try ebay.

A lot of  crocosmia are sterile and the seeds wont grow I am sure monty said something about them on last weeks gardeners  world while he was collecting seeds  go to BBC I .player and check.. best propergated by lifting and splitting corms as "green magpie". said.

I agree BURN it  dont compost or you will spread it round the garden,dont use local council green refuse sites  they do compost at higher temp. but you risk spreading it to anyone buying the compost,.even bagging it and putting it in the landfill rubbish bin will only spred it onto the landfill site and back into the country side.

It does pull up quite easy but do it before seed pods set  then burn it fast

perhaps we are going about this the wrong way why not email their big customers and ask them to read this forum  ie Ideal World  and  Bid tv even if these items were not bought from them they aught to know what people are saying about their suppliers because it could effect their credibility, the fact that Ideal world refunded someone shows they want to keep thier goodwill,
