Replanted this bad boy again, and he will have some new mates this year. Thought I'd try him in a pot rather than the ground as I think it will be easier to move him and store over winter later this year #bulbs

Have still got mine to plant @richard.spicer.7906 quite a bit smaller than yours though 🤓

I love these! Do you know to make your growing medium 30% grit/vermiculite if you're growing in a pot @richard.spicer.7906 They do not take well to being stuck in waterlogged soil, infact it can ruin your lovely bulb completely?

Give it time @debs69 - this bulb is in its third year now, so reckon it won't be long. Already had a second bulb form so not sure what to do with that one yet.

Indeed @lyndag , made sure I put plenty of grit in the pot, and a dashing of horticultural sand! 😁

Dug my Eucomis (Pineapple Lily) bulb up at the weekend for winter storage. It's got very big 😁. Whilst it's put on a great display this year, I'm thinking of putting it in a pot next year rather than the ground.

They are one of my top 10 favs now Joan - I have my eye on a couple of other specific varieties. Buying as a bulb is cheaper than buying pot grown. I'm going to try mail order too. @joanboston
