They are like rich alkaline soil. I achieve flowering in acid soils by
heavy feeding and lots of lime. I associate buds aborting with drought in
spring. These bulbs will desiccate if stored in a dry atmosphere out of the
ground- to say that "they should be as dry as possible" in summer is advice
to be taken with caution.

Do they need a special soil?
