Hi Guys,

I have a question I can't seem to get an answer for online...

When storing winter-growing bulbs from the South African Cape Province, do I need to wet them occasionally in summer, or can I just leave them dry on shelves until they are planted again in autumn?  Last year I left some bulbs dry, and they were fine, sprouting strongly when watered again in autumn.

I was also wondering if it is recommended to dust bulbs with sulphur or some fungicide, or is this not necessary when storage conditions are dry?


PS: I guess I should take my cue from summer rains? :).
