Sir, I can send you the seeds for sure, but they wont come true like plants above... so I will dig up the tubers and check if I can divide them for you..

A few pics from today:

Sweet peas adding colors and fragrance:

Image

Bed of Stocks "Harmony" ..even the single ones are not fragrant, at back are Larkspurs:

Image

Larkspurs, beautiful blue color on delicate foliage:

Image

Dahlias blooming nicely, I was able to save a single seeds from my dinnerplate dahlias last year, the result was an extremely vigorous plant with large semi-double blooms (the purple one in the middle):

Image
Image

Calla lilies growing very nicely, a healthy Zantedeschia aethiopica is sending up its florescence, the others are also forming it in various stages of growth, a very special gift:

Image

And my very simple yet successful experiment, Petunias in fruit crate:

Zantedeschia; I love the plant. Tried once and failed. Has anyone grown it successfully in Lahore? If so I would love to try again.

Izhar,

Love your petunia crate, I will keep it in mind for next season unless you think of some summer flowers that will do nicely in a crate. You have a green thumb, am jealous (not really). Are we joining the flower show in Karachi?
