To second Michael's question, I'm also very curious as to whether you plant
the bulbs right-side up, or whether they are simply scattered and they
right themselves. In my limited experience, it seems that Brodiaea and kin
don't mind too much which way they are planted... they still send out roots
and shoots and figure themselves out. What about Camas, Fritillaria, and
some of these others?
