Hi, I am Bill Dijk from Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.
We (husband and wife) manage and operate a small mail-order nursery (mainly bulbs), both hardy and tender, which originally started of as a hobby.
I am now semi-retired (whatever that means) but I seem to work harder than before retirement. My main interest are in rare and unusual bulbs and plants, although I will grow and enjoy almost anything that offers a challenge and produces beautiful plants.
My favourite geophytes are the exquisite and rare Tecophilaea (in full glorious flower at the moment) miniature Narcissi species and varieties, Cyrtanthus, Lachenalia, Romulea, Lapeirousia, Fritillaria, Hippeastrum, Brunsvigia, Oxalis, Leucocoryne, Rhodophiala, Paramongaia, Lycoris species, Tropaeolum, Trillium, Gladioli, Moraea, Ariseama, etc. just to mention a few.
Great to be amongst people with the same shared passion.
Would love to share/exchange Bulbs/Seed with other keen bulb grower and collectors.
Cheers, Bill
