@carole Yes they like sun, like the rest of us 😃my first one grew in 5 days! It said on the bag 6 weeks. Very quick for blooms with these. What's more I got a double bulb with the last one I bought. I-ve seen some nice purple ones online 😊😊

Looks fantastic Carole 💜. I moved mine and there’s no sign of them coming up. Must be sulking 😂

Thats such a beautiful photo @carolecuttingitfine even if it is #autumnal tbh, the #summer has been so awful, I'll be relieved when its over!

Please Help me identify this plant - it comes up every year at this time and gets eaten by slugs if I'm not careful! Such a lovely colour for this time of year..
