Description: A mix of heirloom bulbs. These bulbs were all collected from a property at the base of Pukekaroro, a reserve across the road from where Koanga Gardens used to be based near Kaiwaka. The site used to be owned by the Coates family. The bulbs are pretty special. Apart from the snow drops they all have outstanding scents and are really old varieties.
