About pbs

Pacific Bulb Society Mailing List

The PBS list has moved to a new host.

More information about the new list can be found at:


Welcome to an Internet discussion forum on bulbs, sponsored by the Pacific Bulb Society, for people around the world.

Although bulbs (defined more broadly to include all geophytes) are the focus, we recognize that people who grow them probably grow other things too and will be talking about them from time to time.

Guidelines for posting:
1. Please sign your posts and include your location and climate information to help the rest of the group understand your information.
2. Attachments are not allowed and including them will cause messages to be held for approval. Images can be shared by using the PBS wiki. See below.
3. Please use a subject heading that describes your post and when responding to that post please use the same subject heading so people who search the archives can find all the information on one subject easily.
4. If you change the subject, please change the subject heading as well.
5. Include only enough information from the post you are replying to identify it. DO NOT INCLUDE THE ENTIRE MESSAGE. This is to keep our archives uncluttered and is also a courtesy to the members of the list, especially the digest subscribers.
6. Post answers to questions raised to our list members to everyone as there will be many interested in your reply.
7. Post messages that are of a private nature (such as thanks or information about swapping seed or bulbs) privately.
8. Please refrain from posting your commercial offerings on our list.
9. Remember whatever you post will be archived and available for others to read.

Procedure for images for this list:

Images from list members are added to the PBS wiki which allows everyone who wants to see them to do so and makes it very easy to find them again in the future. Visit the PBS Wiki

To view bulb images posted to the PBS wiki go to: Images
