Always loved to potter in the garden but only really in the last couple of years, have I embraced it by redesigning our space and growing from seed

I was having a tidy up in the greenhouse and checked the box with my bulb and she's decided it's time to get out of bed! So potted up 😂😂

@hayleyaj I'm going to buy myself one of these this year. Usually buy them for other people.

2w
comment
hayleyaj

Once the flowers finish, cut the flower spike right back to the base but leave the leaves. Continue watering as needed, a feed and wait! It may or may not happen. But they can flower until the end of April and can produce a 2nd flush 😄 @scaryskates

Do you know how to get a flower to rebloom? Mine will only grow leaves after dormant storage @hayleyaj

comment
midnightgardener

That will be fantastic in bloom 😊😊

2w
comment
hayleyaj

Give it a feed and continue to water sparingly when the soil is almost dry. 68-70 degrees in a bright spot, once the flower spike appears increase your watering as it will get more thirsty 😊 @saco
