Non-flowering Gladioli

Posted: 21/10/2013 at 16:56

Thank you both, glad to know it is not just me!  It does sound like it was the harsh winter that has ruined them this year. I'll leave them a couple of weeks to see if they die back naturally and think I will split my chances and leave some in the ground (with a good mulch?)  and  dig up the others and hope for the best!  Good luck chicky!

Non-flowering Gladioli

Hi.  For 5 years I have had a wonderful show from my gladioli, but this year nothing - not a hint of flower on any of my plants.  I was very late planting them out this year due to the bad weather we had - about a month later than normal.  But I am concerned that not one of the plants is showing signs of flowering, neither are they dying back!  I always dig them up each winter and store them in my garage.  This year I don't know what to do with them for the best to try and ensure flowers next year.  Shall I leave them in the ground and hope the frost doesn't kill them so they maybe get more nutrients over the winter or just cut them back and store and hope for the best next year?

Dhalias still flowering late November

Hi I need a bit of advice please.  My dhalias are still blooming - all be it smaller flower heads, but as we are now having our first frosts, should i cut them off and dig them up for the winter?  I have always hated cutting flowers off in bloom, and they are bringing a little bit of colour.  I am concerned that if I leave them to die down they will use up all their energy and not flower so great next year - any advice would be great.

Can you help identify this flower

Thank you for this - It is pretty so I might not dig it up yet - I'll keep an eye on it's spread though!

Hi

I am new to this forum and wasn't sure how to attach a picture - hope this is ok.  I have tried to identify this blue flower which has appeared in my garden - I think thanks to our feathered friends!  I would love to know what it is - can anyone help me? Thanks
