Erythronium plunge basket
However I do have a need to get some bulbs of a few of the Erythroniums. That is the beauty of this kind of bed it is so easy to lift one of the baskets without disturbing the rest.
This is what I was after: some nice healthy Erythronium bulbs. Notice the two outside bulbs have a reasonably sized offset still attached to the main bulb. The two in the centre also had good sized offsets which fell off as I tipped them out of the basket but you can also see that they have second smaller offsets still firmly attached to the base – these will produce a large offset next year. When growing well some Erythroniums can produce three bulbs.
