When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Do you have squirrels? Maybe they’ve dig up the corms 🤔 @kimguy

23 February 2018 • I’ve dug out about 2/3 so have a pile of corms and a bucket full. Time will tell if I’ve reduced it enough or if it just has to go #taminglucifer

I wish I had to tame mine... It's the one thing dug up and brought from my old house, but I've only seen one flower so far. 😏

What a shame Jenn. Is it getting enough sun? I had some that was in partial shade due to tree growth and it stopped flowering completely @jennlamaye

Oh dear!! Luckily it's not a job I need to do yet. I have Prince of Orange but would like to get Lucifer this year. 😈😈

And if you toss those anywhere they will grow. How about some Lucifer bombs Jacqueline? You could paint the town!

That is brilliant Laura! Though I’ll be in trouble if I do it nearby as I live by a SSSI...

@awomanonabike I kinda wonder if the bulbs are being stolen by squirrels. 🤔

Could be I guess. Little tinkers @jennlamaye

Thank you Sue. They had to be relaid due to temporarily having a moat around the house ... but I'm really pleased with how they look now @susanhumphrey333

I really like the way the flowering quince provides support for the Crocosmia Lucifer, which is otherwise a bit wayward
