I have tried these a couple of times and have had no luck at all. Not sure if it's the conditions or if I'm buying bad bulbs.

@heids they were the first thing that popped up when I got my first garden last year, everything after is their fault ! Can't take any credit as they were here before me and still a novice but if it helps its quite acid here and they seem to love the shade of a tree or shrub, (not that the sun shines much up here in the north). Hope you have better luck next time

That's great if they've just popped up in your garden, I believe they're very rare. I'd love some!!!

@Hetheroo I'd never seen anything like it, I was waiting for a knock fron Gardeners world. Turns out you can get 25 little bulbs from Morrison's for £2. Give them a go, I think you plant August onwards and they've just popped up today up here in the north 🥀

@Hetheroo only just seen that last bit, I nearly asked you when I saw your name. I'm guessing you remember the name rather than the pic when I was less folicially challenged. Hope everything going well for you ?
