Light levels for growing SA bulbs - Simplified...

Hi Robin,

I am a beginner with SA bulbs.  None of the ones I have have begun to 
flower yet.  I have had the greenhouse less than a year.  I am just 
presupposing that the light levels in western Washington might be too 
low to get these bulbs to grow and flower successfully.

I really appreciate hearing about others experience!

thanks,

Sarah
