If you want the total details on my bulb frames, please see the 
Timber Press/NARGS book "Rock Garden Design and Construction." Breve,
it is an unheated cold frame,

Sorry, I am just finishing up moving and my computer, while now very 
fast indeed, is not quite configured as I am used to. Also, no more 
bulb frames: I now have a bulb house, and all that needs to be 
finished is planting the spring crocuses and putting on the top layer 
of sand and some topdressing. I am very, very tired.
