Problem

Not as yet, nut, there were no roots left as far as I could see; basically I think it was too defeated by the cold and damp.

Bf206, the bulbs were swollen but not separated into cloves, just had a look at them; flower buds starting to develop at tops, nipped them off to stop energy going to flowers. Planted a mix of Isle of Wight (new) cloves and my own 'seed' taken from last years crop The new ones got off to a flying start, but now they are all looking the same.

Hollie H, I have always found that the best way is to dig one up and see, if it is not ready, you can still cook with it

After 3 years of my Acanthus getting hammered by the winters we've had I dug mine out and put in the rose Margaret Merrill, which within 2 months is flowering. I also took note of comments about it being invasive.

I dug 2 up the other week, 1 hard neck and 1 elephant, neither were ready yet. I'm thinking of trying again in a week. Usually since I plant in October they are ready mid June, but this year the weather has been pretty weird. Mine get watered along with everything else in the veg bed.

Chicky, I think I got them in a plant auction last year; so just emptied the pots into the ground, but should imagine they are a bulb. They have multiplied quite a bit and formed a little clump in poor shallow soil, in pretty much full sun (ha, what full sun?)

Lazy G, please put your muzzle on; this is the second time this evening that you have been rude to me on a post. What is your problem?
