Geoff and I moved to our present house in December 2013. Starting from scratch it's been a huge challenge but we love it.

Yes, they take couple of years to flower, but worth the wait @anges

@richard.spicer.7906 not bad? I took nine babies out of the pot in spring and repotted the main bulb in fresh compost. My burgundy one is just growing a flower spike

Lovely! For some strange reason my bicolour has only ever produced one baby bulb in five years 🤔 I’ve had to get the rest from cuttings. Good to hear the burgundy one is finally got a bud for you. Still waiting for mine 😆🙄 fingers crossed this will be the year

@richard.spicer.7906 I just sprinkle some of the seeds into the surface of the pot when it looks ripe? Beginners luck?😂

richard.spicer.7906

Omg - I never even thought of seed 🤦🏼‍♂️ I keep cutting the faded flowers off! Think I’ll collect some seed this year! Although not sure what result will be as all these are grouped together, might get some interesting hybrids 😄
