A question on crinums. I was lucky to be given a bucket of crinum bulbs late last fall. Due to family illness, they were left laid out in our shop until I could get them in the ground in early spring. By then most had green shoots 1" - 5" long. I planted them anyway. By now, most have either disappeared completely, or withered to browning leaves, more like a typical fall. We've had a really wet winter/spring here in the NW, but our drainage is not bad and I put them in lots of different areas to increase their chances.
I'm encouraged to read that they're tough, so should I just leave them and hope, or dig one up and see if they've rotted away? Guess I could do that anyway, but would prefer not to disturb if they stand a chance.
