Hi John:
           Although I do not garden in your Hemisphere, our year round rains 
produce results that are a little into collision with the book. As Mary Sue, 
I always waited for the cooler autumn weather to sow seed, but seed 
scattered around from my own plants start germinating during summer weather 
that is still really warm. Here autumn starts on March 21st, of course, but 
seedlings of a number of Cape species are already out by then.
The same with many other species as dormant bulbs by the same time. Since 
the longer the season UNDER CONGENIAL CONDITIONS the bigger the bulbs and 
corms obtained at the end of it. Perhaps this all mean than once a certain 
baking is over the seeds and bulbs are ready to sprout even if teh calendar 
says otherwise. Conditions here are equivalent to zone 9 in winter and 10 in 
All the best
