Would you be willing/able to put together a summary for us of his(her?)
talk on increasing bulbs that don't do it themselves?  I for one would be
most interested to hear what was talked about.  Some things are just so
infuriatingly slow that it would be nice to have more ideas on how.  I
still can't get myself to start cutting basal plates on uncommon bulbs.....
I'm too much of a wuss!! <grin>

I appreciate that you may not have time to do this, but I thought it was
worth at least asking about it.  I wonder if it is worth a topic of the
week one week?  I'd certainly like to know more abouot it.
