Hi Alisdair,
it's a given that you need patience when growing tulips from seed ;D
Here are some grown from SRGC Seedex seed from Tulipa clusiana 'Tinka'
Sown in 2007!

This tiny thing is Tulipa orthopoda grown from AGS Seedex 2003 but we only found the first flower in 2014. This year it is flowering well.
Diane, the AGS Seedex director, found out that the seed was collected in the Tien Shan  in Kazakhstan by Jan Blokland from the Netherlands!  Talk about well travelled!

What a joy your garden must be for you.
i love all the photos of tulips, daffodils and recently allium which you post

No garden but two balconies, one facing south and the other north.
Most of my plants are succulents which need little care

Hi Hilary,
it can be a joy but also a burden ;D There is also something to be done but what else would I do with my time!
Glad you are enjoying these pics while your weather has been so extreme - hopefully it is cooling down now.
The worst thing about seeing all the spring flowers is knowing that the summer and the fire season is not far behind :(
cheers
