Yes please Victoria. I used to grow this but lost it. Too dry here really but I'll do my best with it. I grew the original from seed, over-winter chill needed but reliable

Might have been Lyn. My memory is (always has been) poor. I always write down who I'm sending seeds/plants to but often forget who sent them to me. 

They've done very well, I've got some pink on their own so hope to keep them going, white won't look right where they are

I've had nothing except white and that bright magenta pink hollie. 

Did the seed germinate?

Was it you that sent me the pink seed?

Dry seeds completely and store them in paper bags to stop that happening

I favour sowing seeds rather than storing them

Spring bulbs sprout up

They're hardy, they don't need protection. They start growing when the weather is right, slow down if it gets cold and flower when they're ready. No problem
