An exquisite collection of those breathtaking flowers.  Hand picked, hand cleaned and now easier to germinate than ever before if you use the Smoke Primer.

Smoke Primer
- A small 1 inch disc has been impregnated with a ‘look alike’, smell alike’, chemical imitating a forest fire.  By soaking the seed with the disc for 24 hours the natural dormancy period is interrupted and the seed germinates much more readily.  1 disc is included in price of packet together with simple instructions.
