I had the same trouble with yesterday's pelargonium, I must get Phil's Nikon out and experiment, tripod too as I get so many blurry photos, it's finding the time isn't it?!! Its sunny and still in the garden right now, no time like the present! Watch this space... Have a great Friday, anything nice planned for the weekend?
Hi @julie.stevens.946 I always feed them in the spring with compost or a bit or blood fish and bone. They don't like to get too crowded so you may have to divide in spring before they start to grow. I've always found they're best grown in full sun and the ground should be kept moist but free draining
Sorry - going a bit comment mad this morning! :) this looks incredible. I've been uming and ahing whether to buy one of these but this year I'm not including any orange at all... In person, do they still have that orangey tint to them? The buds look pretty stunning even before the flowers!
No worries 😉 happy to help! The standard Crocosmia Montbretia is always orange but I opted for this Lucifer variety which always sports red flowers only. There is a hybrid of the two so one that flowers with orange and red petals and it's called Montbretia 'Emily McKenzie'. It's dead easy to grow and always looks really pretty @wallington
