We are a group of enthusiasts for growing bulbs in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley area of North America. Our group is organized in a very loose way.
"Bulbs" includes all geophytes (plants growing from bulbs, tubers, corms, or rhizomes.) We are interested in and grow either hardy bulbs (growing in the ground all year round) or tender bulbs.
If you share these interests and you live in the general geographic area of concern, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on joining our group. We welcome new members and we invite you to join us.
The GreatLakesBulbs discussion list is called "Bulbs-L" and is found on Surfnet. It is intended to facilitate communications within this group. You can subscribe to this list by simply sending an e-mail to Bulbs-L
The Hardy Bulbs Survey in collaboration with the IBS Bulb Forum is intended to tabulate the varieties of bulbs which are hardy.

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, May 4, 2001. It will be held in conjunction with the meeting of the International Bulb Society at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois. E-mail Jim Shields for more information.
