DESCRIPTION

Veltheimia bracteata - Forest Lily

You are bidding for a packet of 5 seeds.

A beautiful bulbous plant from Southern Africa, where it is also known as the Sand Onion or (more fittingly) Winter Red Hot Poker. This one of group of winter flowering bulbs and is a member of the hyacinth family

It flowers in the autumn/winter after a short dormant spell in the summer, although it may remain evergreen in wetter conditions. The large spiked inflorescence is produced from a rosette of strap like leaves. The flower stem can be up to 60 cm tall with the rosette being as much as 35 cm across.

This species is almost hardy (in fact it will tolerate short periods of frost provided the bulb is well protected by a good depth of soil and is planted in the shelter of taller plants that will lend some protection. For this reason it is probably best to grow it in a pan or bowl, where it can be moved out of the wet, should the need arise. Easy from seed, it may flower in it's 3rd year, although 4 is more normal. For outdoor culture it should be grown in pots for the first 3 seasons.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.

Postage & Handling

International customers - streamlined postage for all seed orders

I will now only be charging two rates for postage for all orders of seeds REGARDLESS of the number of packs bought.

  1. European Rate
  2. Rest of World Rate

Once these rates roll out across my listings, I will once more 'trust' the automated check out process, to make things simpler

These new rates reflects the fact that I use PayPal postage for all my orders and these are the rates I need to charge to use this service

This should allow me to dispatch your orders more rapidly than before as I will not need to visit the Post Office for the majority of the orders, normally inside 24 hours - although at busy times this may take a little longer
