Why are our crocosmia not flowering we have divided them up 3 years ago and have had only one flower they look healthy enough in a deep bed with the sun on them for 80% of the time soil is nuteral.
Awkward b... .s crocosmia, at least for me. Lots of leaves but on some, especially Lucifer, little flower power.
That wasn't much help was it but I sympathise
Peter..........for me, .they like a shallow soil..........maybe that is the problem?
Peter,if this is their third year since dividing they might this year flower well. They grow everywhere here but I think sun and good drainage are important. I would give them a generous application of fish blood and bone lightly tickled in. Careful you don't damage new shoots
Bit of a tangent, but why are the corms of a Crocosmia so expensive, especially when it is so prolific and spreads everywhere so easily? They can be as much as £5 for 5 corms. Quite shocking really.
Tim....I could think of other similar plants that are vastly over priced.
Its part of the Saffron Crocus (Crocus sativus) family (i think) and you know how expensive that is.
a friend's grandad told me to put tomato feed on everything for flowers-worth a try?
20 mixed Crocosmia bulbs in Poundland for the grand sum of £1
