comment

@SylviaDavies yes if its planted too deep they don't like it I can see the tops of the tubers on mine when they die off and I just mulch around them over Winter then in spring give them a good sprinkle of blood fish n bone seems to work for me mine are also in a sunny position, hope that helps but I wouldnt do anything until around late October to raise them up as they don't like been disturbed that's when I took these from mums and didn't suffer flowered first year despite their move 😄👍
