plating bulbs in the south
I've been wanting to plant some bulbs for a while now, and was looking around for some to plant when I found a site that sells them. But they constantly remind me:
"We do not recommend planting (unless you know what you are doing) in the southern portions of AL, AZ, CA, FL, LA, MS, NM or TX."
Well, I DON'T really know what I'm doing. And given I live as south as it gets in one of those states I'm now doubting my ability to grow any of the bulbs they have listed.
I know about Spider Lillies, Rainlily, etc...those few and far between native bulbs. But I'd SO like to try something else.
Are there any avid bulb growers from zone 8+ here to give any advice?
I was especially set on growing crocus, is that too out of the question? :/
