Morning everyone, I had a lovely surprise the other day when I saw this flower spike as this pot hadn’t flowered at all so I’d put it away at the side of the greenhouse. Needless to say it’s back out again #acidanthera-murielae 8/10/19

It is Jeremy, I was so disappointed when I thought they weren’t going to flower but it’s my own fault. I didn’t lift them last year and both pots are very overcrowded @jpea 🙄🙄

One of my favourites. I’ve been growing on the bulblets this year to replenish mine, still have some of the older ones but I think they rot easily in the U.K. winters. I bought mine under the polytunnel in the winter to see if that helps 👍🏼

I've only put my Bowden Lilies and the second lot of giant gladioli last week or so. I had some bulbs on a high shelf away from the cat I forgot I had them there. 😅 Only found them as I'm doing a late spring clean in the house atm 😁😂
