Advice about crocosmia needed

Posted: 22/09/2013 at 21:43

Yes - just like that. I split them up - had a whole bucket full!  Then I replanted them - that is until I got fed up...  I wonder if the older, fatter ones were past their best.

OK - will wait, thanks! Are the old big bulbs I planted any good or should I dig them up and plant new?

I planted about 2 dozen crocosmia but only 2 have flowered. I dug up some compacted bulbs from and old flower bed and re-planted them. I guess that was the wrong thing to do? Do crocosmia only flower on fresh new bulbs? Expert advice need please!

It seems that we are all singing from the same sheet - less sport, more gardening and a wider range too! It would be great to have  hour long episodes.

It is a leaf gall mite. I found this site when I saw these bumps on my tree.
