So sorry at your loss, although we are cat people the companionship our furry friends bring has a special quality.

Lots of observations from a very interesting Log. 
Codonposis Grey Wilsonii - you are lucky if the snails only get to nibble the flowers, I have lost every living part of the codonopsis I planted out this year to slugs and they waste no time in doing it  :(
Corydalis Craigton Blue, in it's third summer in East Anglia has really suffered from the heat and drought we have had until the last few weeks ..... but it has survived with new growth now around the edge of the spreading patch - nothing like as vigorous as in your fertile garden though.
I also grow Eucomis bicolor which has begun to self sow however Maurice (Arduaine) shared this gem with me recently:
"This plant was the means of my making a horticultural breakthrough many years ago, probably as many as 30. I cut the top off a fading flower and put it in a propagator, as it reminded me of rooting a real pineapple top when I was a kid.

To my surprise, not only did it root, but produced a circle of bulblets all of which developed into bulbs and grew on fast. I then discovered that if I cut a leaf into horizontal sections and inserted them upright into the propagator then a row of bulblets formed across the cut too.

In a couple of years my single Eucomis bulb had become fifty!
"

I shall be experimenting in due course.

It is a fine thing, I love colour combination.

Dear Maggi and Ian
I thoroughly enjoyed this week's posting.  Would it be possible to have a thread which pulled together links to all the chapters of this wonderful opus as they are published ?  Having read this one I immediately want to delve backwards and re-read all the others.

Thank you , Jon -  Ian's intention is to draw all the chapters into a single pdf when the work is finished - but he says he will give thought to making an list to be going on with.

Jon

As Maggi states when I have written all the chapters I will combine them into a single PDF for downloading and reading on a tablet, a book reader such as Kindle, a PC or what ever device you want to use - I still hope I can complete this by the end of this year.

For now here are the links to the Bulb Logs that include a chapter-

Thank you Ian
That's really useful.
I find it tricky to get Erythroniums to thrive in pots, but to grow them in the garden here, which I and they would much prefer, I need to prepare a suitable bed, and find a way of keeping out the cherry tree roots which get everywhere, and suck all the goodness out of the soil.  I'm still thinking about how to achieve this.

 OOPS!   Neither Ian nor I noticed that Melvyn Jope's beautiful Crocus goulimyi MELJ 9562 is actually now called  Crocus goulimyi 'Agai Sofia' and not Sofia Agia!  Sorry, Melvyn!
