Crocosmia, no flowers just lushus foliage.

Posted: 10/08/2015 at 17:56

Thank all.

Like I say, or should add, I planted the bulbs about two years ago (could be three) and NEVER had flowers. I've just given them a tomato feed today, first time ever. 

Foxgloves, is it too late to sow?

Great idea Susan.  I'm often worried that  if I scatter seeds, then later I won't know if they are meant to be or are weed seedlings. I might try that method too.

This clump is 80cm and 30cm deep, would you divid? If so when?

What plant feed, something with slightly higher phosphorus? Think Monty Don said that for his flowering planter and suggested a tomato feed.

Foxgloves, is it too late to sow?

My foxgloves are coming to an end, but have loads of seed pods. is it too late to sow them? Common sense tells me, that if the plant looks like it's ready to self seed, then now is okay to facilitate this, but packets of seeds say sow April, May & June.

why is this?

I think I have the answer, but want to check with you guys.

I planted some crocosmia bulbs about two years back and all I get is loads of lushus foliage. They are east facing so only get full sun for half the day. Is it this or that maybe the builbs we small and still maturing? I found one small flower today. 

Is there any feed I can give to help?

Can I just check a few things about my foxgloves (pam's choice)?

i understand they are biannuals, I sowed them last year and they have flowered this year. Is that the plant dead after that? There will be NO new growth next year? What do you do, do you dig out the plant in autumn or just let it die back?

I'm going to collect some seeds and try growing some in the greenhouse and grow over winter, but also hoping there will be some self seeding going on too.

Next year I want more alliums to grow in between the foxgloves. 

is there anything else I should consider?
