Re: Kitty's Booklet

I hate to disappoint, but the only small bulb included in this is
Rhodohypoxis, Red Star, of which I''ve been enamored for a long time and
only now have gotten around to ordering.  The presentation will lean toward
introducing summer bulbs to those unfamiliar with them, so there will be
some basics discussed.  This is another reason I made up the booklet.  You
just can't cover all the details in an hour, and just covering basics leaves
so many questions unanswered.  I've actually only grown 16 off the 22
geophytes covered, and a few weren't particularly successful.  Of the other
6, I'm trying 3 of them this year.  I'm no expert, I've just put together
researched information, but if you'd like I'll send you a book.
The booklet doesn't cover a lot of nuance, it's bulletted reference, but
I've tried to cover the information I would want.
