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

A few of mine flowered but not all of them and the ones that did were all yellow. The flowers only last for eight hours. I was so disappointed. They ended up in the bin 🤷‍♀️

I only got one flower spike out of 10 bulbs, but it's on its 5th bud now, they do seem to keep coming, I'm told their better from the 2nd year 🤷‍♂️ Mine were destined the same way as Jane's, gonna give them a chance now though. Love the Yellow one

This is the first time I have grown these and initially I was a bit disappointed as the flower didn’t seem to last long but wait a day or two and here comes another 🎉 (These photos were taken a few days apart, in order) #tigridia #tigridia-pavonia

I'm really disappointed with mine Jacqueline. I've only had yellow flowers so far and I've not got beyond four on the stems that have managed to flower. Most of the other stems don't look like they are even going to produce anything. Unless something magical happens very soon I won't be bothering with them again. I really hope you have more success than I have 🤞

Love these, I grew them years ago Jacqueline and they were fabulous, the ones I planted this year are rubbish, only 4 grew and so far no flowers. 🤔🤨

A friend grew some last year and was thrilled by them so I thought I’d give them a go. I’m hoping it’s early days as only one has flowers so far… 🤞 @sieveheadsarah
