Roland - thank you. As a inexperienced bulb person, I love to hear how others actually physically manage their collection. Recently I was given a friends neglected bulb collection as in - many with no labels, some pots very weedy, some in flower (glads, scillas, muscari, narcissus mainly), others showing leaf but no flowers. They had all received winter rain. Some I have managed to id as autumn flowerers so have put them aside in my poly house soon to be put into the shade house to begin growth. Others like Crinum, Dierama & Lily I'm familiar with the leaf, so they're sorted. I know it's hard to generalise but a few queries - would the heat in my poly tunnel get too high to store some summer dormant bulbs, and when should they go out to the shade house? (which receives rainfall) Or, if I leave them in the poly tunnel would covering them with some solid material be useful to drop the temperature. I don't have any other dry areas for bulb storage - used to be I could just leave pots outside under a tree, but the last couple of years we've had very abnormal, often heavy summer rains. What would be the best way to manage the unknown bulb pots to determine whether winter or summer growers, and to get them back into their correct cycle? Any advice very welcome, Terry Victoria, Australia "When I make a label I note the name ,date and the supplier with a pencil when it germinate I write an other date and place the pot on an other place same for as it flowers lots of information on one label and when I have time during re-potting I put all in the computer Roland"
