Its digging time and I do 80% of my bulb extraction using my hands.  Start with a shovel then use hands.  (My finger nails are really dirty) I really hate it when I cut a bulb.  Some are cut in half.  Others are just sliced.  What do people do to keep the bulb alive and well?

    Usually if it is a desirable variety I give the cut a light dusting of flowers of sulphur. Usually works and the bulbs grows ok.

    Here in Wellington NZ, I do exactly the same as Robin. It works for me too.
