Dear Robin,

I have found your comments this week about British native bulbs very 
interesting. I was glad you explained about 'Lords and Ladies' as I had no 
idea what Alberto meant when he responded with those words.

I am assuming that most if not all of these plants you have described need 
summer rainfall like they would find in Britain to do well. Do those of you 
on this list from Britain grow any of these in your gardens or do most of 
you have your hands full with the collections you maintain?

Are there other bulbs that although not native or naturalized do well in 
the ground in the UK with minimal care and protection?
