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

“Remove the side bulbs and divide the plant” it says...how? Reminded me of nit combing on a Sunday night 😳 From one plant I now have 14 plus lots of little bulbs (bottom right). I have no more room, no more compost, no more pots, so if anyone would like any of the little bulbs, just ask 😊

That’s a tough looking job! I’ve recently acquired some from a friend, but they were only the smaller bulbs. I suspect I’m gonna have to wait a year or so before it flowers.

It was stupidly hard Rich! They flower once they’re about the size of a shallot, so usually about 2-3 years after they have formed, assuming that is, that you don’t leave them in the pot with a hundred others 🙄😂 @richard.spicer.7906

Thank you! I'm not sure if you'd call it a houseplant, as it spends all summer outside, but it's really easy to grow @pelly @susanhumphrey333 @columbiariver

Usually considered a house plant, this has sat on our table outside all summer and is now rewarding us with more flowers than it has ever had before #red
