I've been trying for the first time this year to grow from seed  
several Brodiaea species, alongside a number of other bulbs from the  
Western USA. I'm happy to report that quite a lot of seed has  
germinated but I'm uncertain what to do next. Others have told me  
that I shouldn't attempt to prick out bulbs grown from seed until  
their second season, at least. I'm also not sure how to treat the  
seedlings when they go dormant in terms of water provision. Does  
anyone on this forum have opinions or advice that they'd be prepared  
to share with this total novice? You can email me directly at or reply on this forum if you think others  
might be interested.
