I am interested in hearing from our members in the Pacific Northwest.

I lived in Edmonds, Washington for many years and grew Crinums, Lachenalia
and many other plants, some with more success than others.  I currently
live along the Monterey Bay coast of California but I want to move back to
the Puget Sound region in the near future.

I'm not particularly concerned about the Tasmanian plants I am growing, but
I have many winter growing Hyacinthaceae, Irids and Amayrlids from South
Africa as well as more than a few S. American Irids and Amaryllids.  Most
have been acclimated to this region and I am wondering about moving them,
potentially in February or March, to the Pacific Northwest.

I do have a friend who has offered space should I manage to make this move
but I would like to hear from growers in the area about what they do to
keep winter growing members of these families alive so I can do as much as
I can to transition my plants to the locale, especially if this occurs in
mid winter.

Thank you,
Currently in the Monterey Bay Region of California
