Dear Friends,
	This is a frequent discussion, but some bulbs do not take to 
growing in pots although the reason may not be clear.  And some may 
be very slow to adjust to incorrect planting depth. Indeed Lycoris do 
not bloom well in pots and they have preferred planting depths. Other 
bulbs are far more tolerant.

	This is the value of this group as we discuss specific 
examples of what works and what fails.

	I love to hear of these challenges.	Makes the next round 
so much easier.	Best	Jim W.
