- Gardenists of STW, fancy a free challenge, Himalayan Lily content.
We’ve collected hundreds of seeds from our Himalayan Lilies.
They take a few years to flower but are pretty spectacular when they do.
Email me and I’ll fire you some seeds in the post.Posted 4 years ago
Hope they don’t spread like Tibetan Balsam, it plagues all my local rides
That’s Himalayan Balsam. That’s a completely different plant and I agree its a menace.Posted 4 years ago
They look fantastic!, but sound a bit of a bugger to germinate. Have you successfully germinated from seed?
We’ve not had a lot of success with germination. It might be worth putting half the seeds into the fridge for a spell to trick them into thinking they are back home. They don’t like being mollycoddled.
This is a bit of an experiment to see if they’ll work elsewhere.Posted 4 years ago
That was a bit of an unexpected response, in a really good way. STW is the new WI.
Here’s the youtube clip I referred to in my emails. This will be a sleeper of a thread as they take a few years till they flower, but it really is worth the wait. Good luck.

Isn’t this how the Day of the Triffids started…?
So after spending years genetically modifying plants that will wee in your shoes and let your tyres down, mcmoonter retreats back to his lab that is cunningly disguised as an artists studio to watch the horror unfold!
You don’t fool me with your seemingly kind and generous gestures mcmoonter!

Strangely, we were talking about this plant at work today (I’m a trainee gardener for the NT) as our plants have produced lots of seed too. We were talking about the viability of UK-grown seed as many propagators advise seed to be brought from abroad as UK seed is often unviable for some reason (we could not fathom). So we too are experimenting with this! Good luck all!Posted 4 years ago
