  Sun, Work and Dracunculus multiplication

Sadly for me I had to leave the beach and come back to work. So if
you can't be at the beach where is the next best place..........in
the garden of course. I have decided to thin out the dormant
Dracuculus vulgaris patch ( the one next to the Dead Horse ) and now
have spare babies of them too. There are some Arum italicum tubers up
for grabs as well.
Want some ? Buzz me as soon as you can so I can finalize the
Helicodiceros / Dracunculus mail out.
Same deal applies.....free tubers but not free post and package.
( Doug Burdic and Vic. Soukup, I already have your Dracunc. requests
so no need to reply ).
I will email again next week with all the info. for tuber recipients.
Cheers from sunny Melbourne ( just like Florida
hey George and Don ).

Dear Rob;
Enjoyed your posting on sun, surf and dead horses...oh what a life!

Didn't jump at Helicodiceros (as attractive as it sounds to me) as
I doubt it will be even approximately hardy here, but I'd love to get some
Dracunculus from you. I used to grow it, but now it is missing from my new
garden with an even better location for it.

And if you have ample Helicodiceros and willing to risk one, I'd
try it like I do Amorphophallus with summers out and bring the pots indoors
for winter.

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
