The people who won the centerpiece mini-troughs at the recent Western 
Winter Study Weekend will find some. We used discarded potting soil 
from my bulb frames to fill them when we planted them last fall.

I spread this discarded potting soil around the garden when remaking 
various spots, and usually get quite a few seedlings and plants from 
tiny bulblets that I missed. Sometimes these volunteers do better in 
their odd new sites than they did when coddled under cover.
