That’s a shame…lack of enough sun maybe as it’s been quite wet where you are? But presumably this hasn’t been a problem before 🤔 Hope Sam hasn’t turfed them out along with his label clear out! 😼 @hebelover

😂😂😂 Only got them last Spring, they flowered last year, bit pathetic though to be honest, thought I'd slung them out in disgust, but no, I somehow moved them to another pot, we have all the foliage, just no flowers, in pretty much full sun, but lacking on that the last couple of weeks, they may flower yet?

That sounds hopeful Jason, they may just be late to the party. If you get some of this forecast heatwave, that may just do the trick 🤞 @hebelover

I tried with these a couple of years ago to no avail. The flowers are so pretty 💛💜💛

That’s a shame Jane, you’re right the flowers are so pretty. I know they like plenty of water but don’t like to sit in water. I overwintered mine in the cold frame so I don’t know if that helped Jane 🤷‍♀️ @pelly

Mine are only just showing the start of their flowers in the soil. I sometimes think I’d be better with some of my plants in pots

Morning everyone, this is incredibly late to the party. I was beginning to think I had lost it after overwintering in the cold frame. So relieved to see it coming through. Can’t say the same for my cannas though. Not sure what went wrong? 🤷‍♀️ #pineapple-lily #eucomis #eucomis-bicolour

Thanks Jane…that’s a shame. Looks like possibly one out of three for me. Could be worse I guess! @pelly

My Eucomis are late, too, although most of my Cannas are showing some signs of life. I think they need more sun and a good feed!!! 😘

Thanks so much Barbara…I’ve just moved them and given them a good feed and watering. Here’s hoping 🤞 @jacaranda
