Welcome Karla,

I would like to see a list of the species in your collection, if that is
possible. I live in between Philadelphia and New York, but have yet to visit
BBG. All of your questions are welcome, and there is usually someone here
who can give you answers. And I look forward to hearing about what you have
learned about your charges. 

Best regards,

Hi Everyone,
I have finally joined and I am pretty excited. I have tons of questions,
but I also hope to contribute information. Now that my bulb season is
over, I am freer to talk about them, and thereby making the season
endless. I take care of a collection of SA bulbs at the Brooklyn Botanic
Garden of New York State. It has become more than my job as any of you
can well guess. It is a modest collection of about 30 Genera and 100
species. I inherited the roughly 20 year old collection and have added
to it in the seven years I have been curator. Mostly I have weeded out
virus infected plants and tried to keep the rest alive. This is my first
time joining such a list.  Thank you for letting me participate.
