I am an amateur gardener just trying some things out for the first time, and do not understand all of the terminology connected with some of my bulbs and plants. I have found that the crown of a bulb is where the plant transfers its energy but that is where my information stopped. Perhaps you could send a photo with your explanation to show exactly where this crown is located. I appreciate your help..

The crown is between the bulb and the plant. Right at ground level. The very top of the bulb is the crown, where the plant emerges. There are exceptions to this, but you will usually be warned when the plant has a different requirement for where the crown needs to be in relation to soil.
