Thanks so much for your contribution. I've been trying some of the native bulbs and Brodiaea has always been a favorite. It's nice to know a little more about it. I have just been trying to decide whether to plant some of the small Calocortus bulbs I got recently in a pot to cover for losing those in the outside bed in case I get raided by gophers. What do you think, and if I do, how deep should that pot be. I'll definitely be getting back to you about the newsletter! Marguerite English, Editor 'The Bulb Garden'
