Thumbs up This year , the mainland Australian bulbs are poor. [Size of a Walnut or smaller] . To see the Longiflorum shoots appearing from a 'nothing' bulb is scary. Australia experienced little or no winter. I also believe the bulbs are being commercially sold a year too early. Hardware store bulbs? - [just walk away], they are sick... I think that this year on the Island of Tasmania [Home of Devil]. Home grown -decent growers are going to excell Confused - I hope so anyway!

Glad I didn't buy anything in from the big island this year!
