Do You Have An Answer?

Does anybody know where to buy the seeds of the Victoria amazonica water lily?

My blog reader in Malaysia would like to know where to get the seeds for the garden pond.
Date of request : October 2010

Can you grow the torch ginger Etlingera elatior in New York?

A reader who was from Malaysia but living in New York now would like to grow this plant from a live rhizome. Growing from mail order seeds has not been successful. As I know, the torch ginger won't survive your winters. 

Date of request dated March 2010.

This is not a joke or quiz. I welcome any informatin!


  1. For a response to both questions
    check in USA.

    They have thousands of members, they sell, swap, help identify DK vegetation, have forums on every imaginable subject, and can help most people in traditional gardening.

  2. That lily is gorgeous. If I knew where to buy them, I would!
