No, they were planted under the troublesome tree in the front garden and I hadn’t spotted that the rising roots had lifted them out of the ground. I’ve rescued them and replanted them in the back so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for next year 🤞🤞🤞
Their quite lovely. @awomanonabike forgive me for my ignorance as I am new to the app. I blindly followed you without permission. So as you can probably work out....I now seek that #permission. If its a no, there will be no love lost. #thankyou
Hi Stephen, you’re welcome to follow me - no permission needed 😊 Some people make their feed private and then you do have to ask but I don’t. Welcome to GardenTags. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it @edelweiss001
8 Jan 19 • Hi Jane. Do you remember saying that you wanted some autumn crocus but hadn’t realised they were naked. These are the leaves beginning to make their appearance, about 9 months before the flowers... @pelly
#poisonous DO NOT EAT. Having read a bit more about Autumn crocus, this comes with a BIG warning. Colchicum autumnale is poisonous & fatalities have occurred. It is NOT the same as Colchicum sativus, although looks very similar. Sativus has very long, 3-part stigmas and the flowers arise at the same time as 30cm long narrow, grassy leaves (autumnale produces its broad, shorter leaves in spring). C. sativus is killed by temp <-15C & prolonged wet so in the UK it only grows in the south.
#saffron #saffron-advice With thanks to Sally Francis of Norfolk Saffron & her article in The Garden. To @ukgardentags Please can you add that this plant (including its stigmas) is poisonous, to the plant information? Thanks
