This I know - they have them at Oxfords botanic gardens!
How deep are your bulbs PA? I've had so many different answers to this.

Mine are just level with the surface, I have seen them planted deeper but I find I get less problems with rot if they are at the surface.

Thank you.
I covered my butt and planted one deep, and one level, the deep one is just ahead.
I was going to let them die back and store dry as I do my Gloriosa over the winter.

Yes I store mine dry seems to be the most relieable way.
