I’ve ordered seed from Bjørnar for the last 3 years. Always been very happy with the quality of his seed. I bought Frit bulbs from August Wu earlier this year through the Chinesealpines online shop - the bulbs were in great condition, the delivery was prompt and my credit card account was not cleaned out!   ;)

I've just bought some seed from them. Using paypal instead of giving credit card details should be safe enough especially as others have bought from Trillium.
What is Bjornar Olsen's background, google just gives a professor of archeaology, is it he?

I have bought seeds from the Bjornar Olsen when he sold as trillium.no  My experience was that germination was better than with seeds from the Meconopsis Group seed list and quite generous amounts. M. integrifolia seed collected in 2014 was still germinating well in 2017.
As Bjornar is still involved I can only assume that the seed will remain reliable.

I noticed that Peter. Lots of nice things at quite expensive prices. Has anyone actially bought from this company before? Its always worth checking out these foreign enterprises beforehand, just in case they are not what they seem?

Discovered today that the new seed list is now on line at  http://ChineseAlpines.com

Some very pricey items but quite a lot of Meconopsis.

One more for the competition to be latest to flower (28th November)

I think that it's Meconopsis grandis.  It's a Chadwell collection from his final trip - so no data, but the seed were large for Meconopsis sp.

I only hope that the plant can now survive the winter and come up again next year!  Tempted to cut off the flower head, but then it'll probably rot.
