I'm definitely in Sunset zone 1, their coldest. As to treating the
Watsonia corms like Glads I still need help -- have never grown Glads,
either! I believe you're correct that Glads are supposed to be kept dry,
& cool, over the winter -- anybody know how dry & how cool? Is putting
the corms in a paper sack sufficient or should they be "encased" in dry
peat or something? All advice & thots cheerfully accepted.
