hi Lauw

The advice he gave was to plant the seeds halfway down a 4 inch pot so they
didnt waste energy pulling themselves deeper. This applied to Narcissus,
Crocus, Galanthus and Colchicums. He showed us slides of his experiments and
it was clear that those planted deep were better plants and in some cases
flowered a year earlier. I'll be trying it his way next year
