Evening all, I had to dig this up and put it in a pot as it was looking rather poorly, I hope it recovers now. It's been a lovely day in the garden today and I've managed to get the rest of my bulbs planted apart from some Tulips that will go in the garden next month and have just about finished my cuttings. Relieved and tired now 😊😊

As usual all the flower buds disappeared so I’ve got one flower and loads of new leaves coming. Will I finally dig this out? I keep hoping it will sort itself out.

They are so sweet that I’m wondering if I should lift mine (it’s not been in long) & put it in a pot so they are easier to see - not that I’ve got any yet, of course 🤷‍♀️

This was in a pot, but I moved it into the garden the other day as I'm emptying my baskets and planters slowly ready for summer planting, it was always intended for the garden. @awomanonabike 👍👍

Good idea. I know they like ericaceous soil so it’s probably only a matter of time before mine starts looking poorly and I have to lift it anyway 🙄

comment

Thank you Phyllis, this is in a planter but my other one that’s in the ground sounds a bit like yours. They prefer a slightly acidic soil and dappled shade. I’m going to mulch mine with ericacious compost to see if this does the trick. I hope this helps @phyl1978 👍👍

phyl1978

Thanks for the advice @pelly mine are outside maybe I'll transplant them into pots with the right soil and move to a more shaded place for over the warmer months, they are obviously unhappy where they are, 👍x
