I've never followed Ian Young's SGRC Bulb Log because of its annoying lack of an RSS feed, but Daniel Mosquin reminded me to check it today, and it's worth the effort to remember to check it every week. This time of year it's a little heavy on the Narcissus for my taste, but the Crocus more than make up for it.

Also see Ian's article on Bulbs from seed, which seems, thankfully, very similar to what I'm doing this year.

Daniel's other link, to Paul Spracklin's Adventures in Mexico, is also interesting if you're into Agavaceae.

Update: Paul sent me the links to his first two Mexican excursions, which I was incapable of finding myself. And if you're a serious Agave nut, you're no doubt already aware of the crazy swiss/austrian agavaceae people already.

For some reason, I can't open my heart to crocus.

Interesting things in that article...I was intrigued about it being okay to sow bulb seeds thickly. Some of my Lilium pardilinum came up right next to each other; I will fret about that no more. Now I have to go get that flat out of the garden before slugs eat it.
