      • Yes, that was done. The seed were ‘pre-chilled’ and chilled again before getting sown. They germinated, but shriveled soon afterward. I suspect that the medium (potting soil) was too rich for them. They naturally live in rocky scree that falls from the tops of the Alps.

  1. Maybe you don’t know that Pat, but Edelweiss MUST NOT be picked, anywhere! They are protected goods and have been for – just about forever!. Same thing for the Enzian…. So buy them at the store, please.

    • If I wanted to I couldn’t. I do not think that I would get up a mountain with my scooter or wheelchair and the walker is out of the question. It is the Migros that sell them here.

      • I know that you can’t do that now. We however , when we lived in Canada a loooong time ago, got one day a wonderous parcel from elderly friends from Switzerland. It contained, wonder oh wonder, some Enzian and an Edelweiss or two in softly padded once wet tissue, Swiss biscuits and chocolate. I was in such a shock that they did something forbidden for us that I couldn’t even enjoy the generous gesture! 😉
