Dear All:

I read somewhere (I think it was in an old Herbertia) that the winter growing Brunsvigias do better with an occasional watering in summer.

For those of us who live in California, we tend to think of a Mediterranean climate as one where there are several consecutive dry months with no rain at all, but I seem to remember talking to Rachel when she was here, and she said that they get storms about once a month during the summer in the Cape.

Perhaps she could comment.

It has been my experience will all bulbs that keep their fleshy roots during their dormancy (Ipheions also) that they want some moisture while dormant (not much), otherwise their permanent roots desiccate.
