Forcing Watsonia

Posted by Growergirl z7 GA (My Page) on

I wonder if anyone here can help me. I need to force 1200 Watsonias for a conservatory. I am having trouble finding any information on forcing Watsonia in a greenhouse. I have three cultivars to force: Watsonia 'Flamboyant', Watsonia 'Sea Shell', and Watsonia 'Snow Queen'. A group of each needs to be in flower on January 15th, February 15th, March 15th and April 15th. If anyone has any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

You might want to contact a large garden the grows those (cape bulbs) for winter display, off the top of my head I'd think Longwood in PA or Wave Hill in the Bronx.
