I seem to recall that these corms need to be soaked in water before planting. Is this correct?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, soak in tepid water overnight.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thanks. I did just that. My mother says they also have to be planted on their sides, but that's not
something I did. First, it's hard to tell which would be the side. Second, I didn't know that before
I planted them Shrug!

No; you're probably right, but in my zeal to post my question, I just called them corms along with the others.
Either way, they both (De Caen and Blanda) got soaked before planting.
