	This is why I have been hesitant to grow the reticulatas...I think
	we may be in an extreme climate for them. I think it is almost too
	extreme for me. :-)

>Question to reticulata growers:  How do you maintain your collections?

	Looking forward to the answers.

	Cheers,

	Ellen (still winter here, folks)

and others interested in reticulatas
Some years ago I have grown Reticulatas and Junos, but by circumstances =
now no. Our summers sometimes is to humid and I will return to grow them =
when I will be able to arrange structures with glass roof.=20
For succesfull growing, yes it is best sandy soil, but one secret is =
that reticulatas need of great quantities of lime. Best to add to soil =
dolomite meal. Many. 5-10kg per sq. m. Most of them like dry, well =
drained position, but for I. winogradowii the soil all the time must be =
moist, not dried in summer. And I. winogradowii do not like often to =
replant. Or please give the moisture. Bulbs of  I. danfordia after first =
bloom split to small bulblets and do not flower for several years. To =
prevent this, deep planting and great quantity of dolomit meal is need. =
Don't fertilize with other fertilizers, organic or mineral! If leave =
bulbs in the soil after leafs become dried, planting position must be =
sunny and warm to generate embryo for next year flowering. I used method =
to dig out bulbs and keep them in warm position until autumn planting. =
But it can be extreme, as you write.
