Remember to leave one to set seed tho if you want more in your garden
I think you will find that it is just a new stem pushing up. Obviously your TLC worked
Yes damsel/dragonfly will use other plants but Iris can still be a good addition provided there is also a varied range of plants in and around the pond.
Lion dung as a deterrent is a myth. It simply means a premium can be charged to those poor beggars who are plagued by cats in and around their gardens.
Not just the supermarkets Patrick..........the big chain DIY places are almost as bad. Such a waste but they buy them in so cheaply, they don't worry about the stock loss.
If it makes you a miserable old git, join the club
Quote....... ." likewise iris which are also too vigorous, take over and provide poor habitat "
Flag iris are vigorous growers but can be kept in check easily enough. They do add to a wildlife pond..........damselfly/dragonfly in particular make excellent use of them
In my experience, ericaceous compost tends to be almost dust like and dries out very quickly (particularly in a pot ). Check that it hasn't dried out and/or that it is not root bound first. Then follow the advice for growing these plants and see whether you feel it is worth it or not.
Provided the treated fence is thoroughly dry there shouldn't be any problem. If you are in any doubt, leave it for a week or so.
Not a good idea to destroy something without being sure what it is so a photo as Nutcutlet suggests is a good start
Janet....is yours what previously was sold under the name of Amaryllis Papillon ? I purchased one bulb in 1995 and now have a good clump. They flower rarely.......mine have probably only flowered half a dozen times but I admit to not taking a great deal of care over them sometimes
