Sicilian Honey Lily Flower problems..

Posted: 09/06/2017 at 14:00

The flowers aren't that conspicuous and also brownish, you could miss them.

The few that are hanging down are in flower but those brown ones pointing upwards have flowered and are going to seed.

the orange one is Hieracium aurantiacum, Fox and Cubs, Orange Hawkweed.

What is this wildflower?

I can't see the leaves very well but the flowers look like Feverfew. Does it stink when you poke it? If not, need a look at the leaves more clearly

Sicilian Honey Lily Flower problems..

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
