Hi all,

Mary Sue, to be literal about my seed sowing direct into the ground, said
ground is really one large scree, filled with various mediums to accommodate
various bulb profiles grow.

>Do you
>add fertilizer to the mix?
No, but when I think of it, I do like to use what I term soil conditioners.
A light mix of complete trace element and a carrier like liquid seaweed. Not
at all very scientific, but over the last three decades I find this as we
are speaking in generalities, to hold.

>Do you
>protect from the rain or leave the pots out exposed to the elements?
for the most part yes. But  I always cover with fine grit. I use 1-2mm grit
because this works for me across the board.

>What size and kind of pots does everyone use?
I prefer troughs.
