toffeeappleHi Ive just bought a packet of assorted spider lillies, white pink etc, Im wondering if any one has been succesful in growing these very attractive flowers.

I would read the instructions on the back, but its in Bulgarian Im not too good at reading it yet, any way I was interested to see if any one has been succesful?

Fingers crossed!

Try google translation, should be good for a laugh! big_laugh

I haven't grown them, but would guess they need heat to start off the seeds. Where is greenfingerish when we need her? big_laugh
