Calla lily

They came off in my daughter's hand when she was 'titivating'.  I'm hoping the corm/bulb is OK and that the plant will grow back in a few months time.

The leaves and stem have fallen off my indoor calla lily.  Will they grow back, and how do I look after it?

I've ordered mine from Hayloft Plants - 3 for £18.50 or 5 for £24.00.  These will be supplied as young plants from July 2013 - can't wait.

I am about to purchase some.  Aren't they beautiful?

Aftercare of geums

Posted: 08/09/2012 at 21:24

My Geums (Mrs Bradshaw) have flowered wonderfully for months,and are still going.  I do deadhead them very regularly and sometimes the new buds are very small indeed, but after a few days produce lovely flowers.  I also pull out those stes that are beginning to go brown. I don't water them unless we have had a prolonged spell of hot, rainfree weather (not much of that this year!).  I had three new plug plants this year, and they have done quite well, and I expect them to do even better over the next couple of years.

I have three Queen Victoria plants, divided from the original a couple of years ago.  Earlier in the year I gave a cutting that had broken off to my sister.  My three plants are thriving, as was my sister's.  However, the other morning she noticed it had been literally torn to shreds.  There was virtually nothing left of it, including the thick stem.  This happened overnight.  The other plants close by are not affected.  What on earth could be the cause?
