Until this year it's been a struggle keeping enough moisture in the soil for
them. At present, these are in a plastic lined bed and shaded by a huge
clump of pseudacorus-X for all but 5 hours.

I'm still trying to get the balance of water/compost just right for the
purchased bulbs (only 3 survive) but the new seedlings seem to be more
tolerant of abuse.
