Hello Aad

Holland would not be the easiest place to grow these.  As Alberto says, 
some are summer dormant and some are winter dormant.  However, I have 
found that I transplant when it suits me except in spring, and autumn 
when some of these are in full growth. Most of these are such easy 
bulbs.  For myself, the biggest problem is Stagonospora. Most of mine I 
keep on the dry side.

Have been transplanting a lot of mine over the last few months.  They 
need excellent drainage, so am planting them into a mix of3/4 pumice, 
1/4 potting mix.
