I bought some bulbs this year but have not yet planted them, so should I plant now In June or wait until Oct/Nov?
Planted 5 last autumn, 2 are showing leaves about 5 inches high but no flower spike is that usual? The frost did burn the tops slightly.
I have clay soil but added 2" of gravel & sand before planting, and covered with conifer clippings during winter. Any tips and advise most welcome. Fingers crossed a spike will appear soon...
