Until this happens I'll stick with nurseries and plant fairs.

Go for some species as Berghill suggests Dove. You could get a new variety when they cross. Call it Dove and sell bulbs for £400 a piece on ebay.

They come from cool Northern Europe. In the Uk if we want to grow tropical plants we have a heated greenhouse or conservatory.

You may have to provide the opposite of this

Snowdrops???

True Gemma, I can see the leaves of sternbergia emerging from the heap and some narcissi. Haven't seen any snowdrops yet, any day now maybe
