Bill the Bulb Baron

I visited Bill Welch's nursery some years ago to buy bulbs for my 
brother's garden near Monterey. He was very welcoming and enthusiastic 
about the plants, which were growing in field rows. It was the first 
time I had seen Haemanthus in flower, an amazing sight. At that time he 
was selling his plants mostly through farmers' markets. He obviously had 
a profound devotion to his work with bulbs. As with so many who have 
gone before us, his legacy flowers on.
