Many thanks for all the suggestions and specific advice. I'll give it  
a go next year and will try to remember to report the results on this  
forum for the curious.

The issue of bulbs taking time to adjust to a different hemisphere is  
an intriguing one. I have a few Gladiolus and Ledebouria from the  
same source and they all made the transition with aplomb.
