Hi Anne Marie,
I am a somewhat experienced bulb grower, but only because I joined pbs.
Sure, the group sounds informed, and it is, but also the group is very
friendly so don't hold back from asking.

Even though I grow many of the bulbs discussed here, I too am sometimes a
little hessitant to participate in some threads, but once you dive in, it
really isn't that scary!

Welcome to the group! And for what it's worth, I still need to attempt
Glad's and Homoglads from seed, some of us would love to hear about your new
exciting venture.
