I'm waiting on my Hayloft plants to arrive as well. I recently got the Salvia collection from them and they were all good sized plants. They're potted on now into 9inch pots. I hope my White Swan are as strong and healthy when they arrive.

The new shoots made by the little bulbets will take a few years to form into big enough bulbs to produce flowers. I've done this over the years and eventually get flowers. I agree with Bob, it's best to pot them on and don't forget to feed them. Good luck.

I've taken a few cuttings in the usual way, cutting below a leaf joint and removing the bottom leaves and growing tip. I've got them in water on the kitchen windowledge this past week or so and so far they're still alive. No sign of roots yet but it's early days.

I normally do the Sedum and the White Phlox but this year the Sedum is still very small although I will do the Phlox, maybe next week or so.
