freesia, sparaxis, etc from dept stores
I succombed once again and bought a pkg of freesia and a pkg of tigridia from a home improvement store. Does anyone ever really have success with these? I have very rarely gotten decent germination and yet I continue to fall prey to the pretty packages. Any advice on growing the lesser known bulbs? I dream of bouquets of sparaxis, ixia, freesia, ranunculas, tigridia... you get the picture! I know that none of them are hardy in my area but if they would come up once I would gladly store them over winter.
