Evening Gtagers! 🧡🧡 it’s been far too long! My red hot poker is proof... only had a single proper flowering stem to it in previous years and this is the first year I’ve had multiple. Looking forward to catch up on your latest posts 😊

Haha very strange Jane. I’ve got more some more shoots with flowers this year. Think I’ll need to be careful with any frost and tie up the crown like I did last year... 🙆🏻‍♀️❄️🙅🏻‍♀️😁 @pelly

I've worked out its water water and more water! Had a couple of dud years, but now in know they love moisture as much as they love sun. I have one in a very dry bed and one in a well watered bed with my banana, guess which bloomed and which didn't? Both have the same amount of sun. 😊
