bulb planting advice

When they seed naturally they germinate on the surface of the soil.

There are many seeds where I think the seed packet advice is to plant too deeply. I am apt to follow Mother Nature in some regards! And especially with regard to the time plants naturally cast their seed.

Could just be the result of a cold wind or lack of water - it hasn't rained adequately where I am for weeks.

Infiltrator, you seem to have time on your hands! I just make sure my butts and storage containers are covered at all times. I never filter either physically or chemically and the water remains sweet and clear from year to year.

If they are in the soil as opposed to bags just cover the shoots with soil. At this time of year there are only frosts on still nights so you can cover the shoots with newspaper and it will not blow away; and it is easy to remove in the morning.
