Dear Kane and all,
	This may relate to the reason why dry dormant bulbs did not 
establish, but those active and growing in a pot did much better. I 
think it suggests that new dry bulbs should be potted and given TLC 
for a growing season before putting them to the perils of life back 
in the ground.

	It's a good idea. Has anyone else had this experience? 
	Thanks	Jim W.
