Dear Friends,
	These bulbs were offered in BX 192.

	Any suggestions on how to handle these dormant bulbs? They 
were donated by Alberto Castillo in the Southern Hemisphere and 
dormant during his summer. Now moved to the Northern Hemisphere, 
these winter growers are still 'dormant'. They should be in active 
growth here and now.

	Should they be planted now and watered or held dry for a few 
months to complete their dormancy, then planted and allowed to have a 
short growth period before a long summer dormancy?

	Curious. Any experiences moving winter growing bulbs from the 
southern hemisphere to the northern?

			Thanks		Jim W.
