Why is this?
It flowered in its first year, in a raised flower bed, and then never since (that was 3 years ago). Haven't moved it. Free draining, lots of sun, lovely leaves and seems very lush.
Am I doing something wrong?!
Good point Bekkie.
Everything else in that bed flowers well though and I have never pampered it - honest
I can't help with your problem Jess, but thank you - you have just ID'd a plant for me
I look up all the names I don't recognise just out of interest and lo and behold yours was one of my mysteries! I tried to ID it before but every time it looked at it I had 'dianthus cruentus' in my head which is nothing like...
Glad it helped!
This is a great site for gathering info and advice.
that said, I'm no closer to understanding why my erodium won't flower and if I need to change something....
Will do - tomato feed in the watering can as we speak
One thing I don't understand though - if they are too lush and being too well looked after, how does feeding them work?
I wouldn't have a clue. Mine had a drainpipe lying on it for part of last year, not sure if it flowered then.
Why don't you split it, if it's large enough, like Bekkie said and put the other piece in some different conditions?
Mine's in partial shade now, only gets sun from the east although it says it prefers full sun...
Soz- didn't see other replies til I posted...
Might do VS- it's not all that big though so am a bit worried about splitting it....
Nitrogen gives lots of green lush leaves, phosphorus for roots, potassium for flowers and fruit. Tomato feed will be balanced towards potassium to encourage the flower/ fruit side of things.
Just hoping it's correct, Bekkie. Waiting for Nut or Dove to turn up and tell me off
