Thank you, Michael Loos, and others who responded to the seed starting questions. I moved my Veltheimia seed pots (PBS BX seed from many weeks ago) from outside onto the top of the refrigerator. It's been about seven days and I'm seeing my first sprouts. I'm lucky I did not lose them. I assumed that if they bloomed during winter that winter sowing was the way to go. Kathy S. Gardening in Northern California, zone 8 or 9, where Muscari azureum is starting to show flowers and it's supposed to be sunny for the next seven days. I winter sow many types of seeds because of the mild climate but it certainly didn't work for the Veltheimia.
