I have several Rhodohypoxis, including this one. Mine are very small. Do you deadhead yours to keep it flowering? I am new to them and I want to get the best out of them.

Thanks everyone, I will post more pics as everything starts to flower

@Woodgreen I deadhead my garden religously to the point where I even pick off dead/dying foliage, so I guess the answer is yes

Lovely pics chaps

Summer has arrived this morning.   So sunny, bright and warm..

Hurrumph, overcast here - no doubt we'll get sunshine as soon - as I get to work - but this is the last June I'll ever have to work - have I mentioned I'm retiring??? 

24/06/2013 at 06:47

You retiring dove.  No?  Lol

24/06/2013 at 06:50

See my boss has just taken early retirement following bad Ofsted report - how come she gets to go early with a full pension when she screwed up - I didn't screw up and I have to wait ....

Two sets of rules Dove ......

24/06/2013 at 07:45

Are you retiring Dove- you never said...

Dove- it's the way of the world now isn't it? It's a wonder anyone stays motivated in may jobs now when we see poor work rewarded and good work ignored.

Summer has definately arrived, whatever the weather. Can't show you anything in my garden in France at the meoment as I'm on holiday in England. We have visited gardens and I've put them on this thread, very colourful - especially Great Dixter which I have a soft spot for.
