Why don't my Fritillaria imperialis lutea flower?

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 20:19

How long have they been there?  I planted two in a pot in autumn 2012 and although they grew lots of greenery we had no flowers in 2013.  

 I remembered that in a previous garden there had been a long established clump of Fritillaria imperialis which flowered well every spring and all the bulbs  were almost up on the surface of the soil - so last autumn I repotted my two bulbs with their noses proud of the compost - this year one of the two bulbs has flowered well.  

I don't know whether it didn't flower last year because the bulbs were immature or whether one flowered this year because it was happier with it's nose peeking out of the soil.  However, I'll leave them as they are, feeding with FB&B as the flowers fade and hope that both bulbs flower next spring. 

Good luck with yours
