Boss no. there are a lot of things I cannot grow even though I have been growing alpines and dwarf bulbs for over 50 years some I have given up on because my growing conditions are not right.I like to pass on things i have learnt along the way rather than take them with me.
When I started out in my twenties I talked to many people who were very kind in there advise and gifts of plants and over the years have tried to encourage others.

Aye....every day is a school day.

P.S. I (or my garden) am not good at tulips, fritillarias and crocus.....they flower but will disappear next year so I gave up (on the contrary, muscaris and colchicums are fine in my garden)
