I purchased one from a bargain corner at the end of the season from the local garden centre. Its produced some leaves but no flowers yet. I have put it in a pot. Sounds like from what everyone is saying it will be fine in the garden as long as its protected.
And given moisture Allium. I have grown this in a pond. ,
At last I have flowers!
My experience is that it will not flower unless it has summer moisture and sun....it will grow well in shade but no flowers. I find it easier to give it these conditions (and to put it under cover during winter) if it is grown in a large pot stood permanently in a drip tray of water on a sunny patio throughout the summer....if grown in a pot food is also a requirement.
I have two large pots of Lily's and do nothing to them them had about 3 years and always flower, and only water when they are in flower, I live in Warrington Area near to Bents Garden Centre !
Hi,can all you fellow arum lillie lovers tell me how long before a young plant grows to a mature plant.. Thanks
i have two of these a white one and a yellow one they are in the stone driveway in their pots still.both throw leaves up but then they die back to nothing again .the white one sent a flower then which proceded to rot away .everyone else says they are easy to grow but mine wont
How big are he pots and how much water do they get?
These grow in water, they need plenty to drink
I planted up some arum lily bulbs this year and have grown them in a pot, next to a south-facing wall beside some tomato plants in pots. I watered and fed the arums when watering and feeding my tomatoes. I now have luscious, large leaves, but no sign of flowers. I have no greenhouse, so will have to find a space in the house to overwinter when the frosts come. Do you think I have any hope of flowers next spring?!
