Iris flowering - is this a problem

Posted: 08/02/2016 at 07:24

Yes, you can't keep bulbs for very long - they have a season when the leaves die down and they rest, which is when they're dug up and packaged etc, but if they're not planted so that they can grow when they're supposed to they will just rot.

They're only resting, not in 'suspended animation' like seeds.

Plant them and see what happens, and don't forget to let us know

Good morning Chicky  G'day Pat

It's a bit blustery here but not enough to cause problems.  5.8C overnight and 7C at the moment. 

At least it's not raining ...... so far .......

This site (which I've never used so cannot vouch for) says they have them in stock from the beginning of September until the end of April

But I think the calamondin are thought to look their best when they're covered with fruit

Hi Sparkles

I've a feeling they're usually in the garden centres in the autumn/run up to Christmas - that is the main fruiting season for citrus so it's when they'll be looking at their best.

Why not contact these people and ask them?

The contact details are under the Customer Service tab.

I hope Fairy  doesn't mind me telling you she's not been washed ...........

I heard from Fairy the other day - I don't think she'll mind me telling you that she's got a touch of RSI so is staying away from the keyboard as much as possible for a bit until it settles.  Otherwise she's perfectly fine and has not been washed or blown away

It will be fine with the snow (if it happens).  Put a marker of some sort next to it, a large stone or a stick or even a label, so that you don't dig it up in the summer when the leaves have died down. 

Then next spring, show us a photo of the flower
