Sicilian Honey Lily Flower problems..

Posted: 09/06/2017 at 12:30

Have you got a photo? Did they go through all the pointing up, then drooping down, then pointing up again stages?

Had to google the name. It's Nectaroscordum silicum, never heard the honey lily name before

If you grew some other plants as well you might make a little after the outlay for the stall, compost, pots etc. Not a huge money maker though as annuals aren't going to fetch a huge price. If you think you'd enjoy the experience, have a go.

Is it growing?

I've never been fussy about when I prune the elders but I get better flowers if I don't prune them

Like most of the questionnaires we get on here, the questions and answers seem to provide little if any relevant information for the subject proposed   . If this was a survey trying to find out if we fifties+ used technology then fine. But if it is trying to find out if we use technology in garden centres then it misses the mark totally. 

I could be totally facetious by saying I sit in the garden centre with my smartphone while having a cup of coffee and checking whether  ama&on has the same product cheaper.....

See original post

 Quite so hogweed, I use the technology to avoid going to shops and GCs

sow thistle or something closely related

I can't ID from that photo even if it's a plant I know. I need to see it growing. I'll wait til it grows again, it has the look of something that will grow again

Is technology different if you're over 50?
