Having seen some of the photographs of your plants I feel that more than a layman you are a skilled and well informed gardener, an asset not only to this forum but to the wider community.

Thank you for understanding and taking on board the points raised.

regards
ifzal

Sir aap ki Zara nawazi hai but the truth is every knowledge I have is from this community on the forum for which I am thankful. My personal experience with plants is just two years. I lost many due to ignorance and saved many due to proper guidance from the people here.

Drimia maritima in Petra, Jordan

Post by elsplendido » January 11th, 2014, 11:43 pm

I have heard the Drimia maritima being cultivated by some growers in India and Pakistan. As I would be interested pecularily in the red variety of Sea Squills, are you aware which variety of bulbs you got from Jordan (seems one has to look into the bulb, as the color seems to be defined by the inside color of the bulb (white or reddish)? In the latter case, I would be interested to import a larger quantity of the living bulbs. Any help more than welcome ...

I am not aware of anyone cultivating these for sale in Pakistan. I got one Giant Squill from this guy who is cultivating them on 8 acres in California http://www.easytogrowbulbs.com/c-73-squ ... white.aspx

You already know how I got the ones from Petra. Hope this helps.

I would think there are many varieties but it would be very hard to tell
