bulbs dieing back for next year

Posted: 24/04/2015 at 17:49

I pick the whole lot, bulbs and compost out of the pot and put them in anything I have buckets, old compost sacks, just make holes for drainage. I leave mine there till next september, but you can crumble the soil off and store them in a box in the shed.

We have done that in the past, wait until the shoot are a couple of inches and keep about 3 shoots to each piece.

you can buy a small tub of flowers of sulphur on ebay for 3.45 post free.

By this time next year you wont see the silver leafed plant, the celandine wil cover it. I would dig it out. Make sure you get every little bulb out or it will grow again.
