Re: Bulbs


Libby-I must confess that I never purchase bulbs from catalogs, unless it's
something I just MUST have. Reason, I always forget where I've planted them
and end up digging them up and then they never do well. Yes, I've tried
marking the spot, but somehow it just doesn't seem to work out for me. My
favorites I keep in pots such as Blood Lily, Gloriosa Lily, and a couple of
others. I do have some in the ground that manage to make it each year. My
main regret is that I can't seem to get Tigridia to thrive. Now those I
wouldn't forget where they were. I LVOE them!
