Dear Roger,
	Thanks for your note of confidence. Although I do feel 
doomed, I know I CAN grow sprengeri. I did have three blooming bulbs 
I grew from NARGS seeds years ago and loved them all.  I decided they 
needed a better sunnier spot so moved them and they all failed to 

	I'd gladly raid your garden for bulbs, but a bit on 
inconvenience, you see.

	I'll try again with the latest Seed Ex seed (from Peter T) 
and struggle on.

	I am not DOOMED, must think positively.		Thanks	Jim
