Red Hot Pokers

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 17:46

I have 6 large Kniphofia Caulescens in a group and they have produced great pokers until this year? All of them have new growth in the middle but no poker stems.

Do they rest for a year?

Each year I leave them to over winter with no care except in spring taking off the spent leaves from the wooded stems....

Any advice would be greatly received

I planted a peony 3 years ago and it has never flowered. I believe if you plant too deep they never will.

Is it worth trying to move as led to believe they hardly ever survive or will it eventually flower?
