Hi Tinkerbella, Don't know much about those plants, but a couple of things come to mind. Waterlogged soil or frost. But don't really explain why three are ok. Could also be a worm type thing eating the bulbs. Patchy brown can be rust. Sorry I cant be more helpful.

Another thought tinkerbella, if your plants are early for the time of year, a big drop in temperature would not do them much good either.
