Dividing bulbs

Dear Fellow Bulbophiles,


This is the time of year when I, here in Eastern Pennsylvania, USA, zone 6/7
, divide my potted bulbs. I can only grow most crinums, xamarcrinums, and
hymenocallis/ismene in pots during our summer, and then I keep them dry and
frost-free during the winter. Are there summer growers that all of you have
that you divide in the late spring/early summer? 


And, I am collecting seeds from my winter growers - mostly from the
experimental pollen dabbing with hippeastrums, in my case.


It is the beginning of the new season for the Pacific Bulb Society BX (Bulb
and seed exchange). I plan to share the offspring of my collection with the
BX. I hope that you will share too. 


Best wishes,



Dell Sherk, PBS BX
