Bulb Storage

An alternative to ordering net bags is to make them yourself. You can 
buy various kinds of netting at any large fabric store. If your 
sewing machine doesn't like the netting, you can cover the seam with 
tissue paper while sewing. I did this when I thought I would grow and 
store my own onions -- not realizing that good storage onions can be 
produced only where they get sufficient heat in summer. I don't store 
ornamental bulbs out of the ground for very long, and so I just use 
brown paper bags (obtainable in bulk from Costco) for the 4 to 6 
weeks they're out during my annual bulb sale.
