I live in La Jolla, California, just a few hundred yards from the Pacific (Sunset zone 24). I have been growing South African bulbs for nearly two decades. My original plants I bought from Richard Doutt and I have slowly added to my collection with the help of Jim Duggan, who purchased Richard Doutt's stock when he retired.
Originally from Eastern Canada, with my wife, Helen, I have gardened enthusiastically for some 45 years. Apart from a small bulb collection, my main interests are vegetable and fruit growing and an orchid collection. I still spend two days a week at my day job as a sleep disorders physician at Scripps Clinic.
