panamint_patty: Great advice. I helped a friend plant a few bulbs last weekend and we're gonna help another friend this upcoming weekend. Last year we had good results and we're looking to extend that a little this next year.

UPDATE: Bulbs coming up at both friends' house! Crocuses actually blooming. Otherwise little plants are sprouting out of the ground and growing! Spring is off to a good start in the garden!
