Danny, I don't understand how you end up with so many doubles!! Do you use Blossom Peacock on most of these?
This one is interesting...

I'm intrigued by the bulbs that are nearly sitting on the surface in the background. Do you routinely plant your bulbs that high?

to answer your question on how I grow my bulbs I plant them with 1 third of the bulb under the garden soil I find that this makes them go looking for moisture and foods they make a lot of roots As the pups develop they will push the mother bulb up until she is on top of the soil but still holding on with her roots Baby bulbs are planted up to their neck in soil until they get bigger This flower I have called hot lava Regards and happy growing Danny
