Was there supposed to be a message with this, or are you just proudly showing off your Lenten Rose?
Some of mine are like this and some have been in full flower for weeks. They all need to have the old foliage removed asap as it shows off the flowers and lets the new foliage come through with a reduced likelihood of getting damaged or diseased by the old.
The weather has been awful and just got rid of snow so will go out now and remove leaves as its a nice night now obelixx.
Goldilock I was sure I posted amessage
Just been out and taken off leaves but its turned so so cold.
Although they sulk a bit after being divided, the best time to do it is just after flowering. I have a lot of self sown Lenten Roses - all purple - but I also have a couple of Ashford Hybrids that have just gone over and I divided them yesterday. Here's hoping they get over it.
I have a nice lemon one that has been in flower since mid Feb and still in bloomGL.
There you go again Verdun......behave, RD is a breath of fresh air, soooo keen and enthusiastic.
RD-you 're putting us all to shame! It's always amazing how quickly those tiny seeds grow. My lettuce are about the same height as yours and sweet peas and tomatoes look like proper little plants now. I don't want mine to come on too quick as I've nowhere for them to go yet and I also need one of those plastic greenhouse or something to harden them off.
there you go red
