Historical tulips will be the death of my wallet

Just a note: today I bought these tulips from the Jacques Amand site:

Columbine 5 pack
hageri 20 pack
Lac van Rijn 3 pack
Panorama 1 pack
acuminata 3 pack

Normally I keep my gardening notes over at the Dawndoll site but I don't have the password memorized so I'll have to wait until I get home.

I'd like to have a few more of what they call "breeder" tulips so I can have an entry in next spring's Wakefield show, but at £4.50 a pop I was somewhat discouraged - I've written the society secretary and asked her if anyone can share their extras with me instead. To think they were only £1.25 each at the tulip show and I balked at buying them there!
