I spy a snakes head finally, in the woodland patch. Still waiting for the ones in pots to come through.... But they are on their way 😊 #fritillary #fritillaria #fritillaria-meleagris #snakesheadfritillary
I thought I'd try a couple of places - I've got a batch in partial shade in the ground and some in a bit more sun in a pot. First year I've successfully grown them as failed miserably before. Are yours out yet @pjwbushnell ?
Hi @richard.spicer.7906 Every single part of the lily is poisonous...leaves, pollen, petals. I just wish a warning was put on plants both indoors, bouquets & for outdoor planting! May have to start a petition! ☺
Snakehead Fritillary - another one that I'm trying both in pots and in the woodland path. They prefer partial shade, and do not like to be waterlogged so good to add grit when planting. The bulbs will look like they have split, but this is normal and you will see close up the growing tip coming through the centre. Plant with this tip facing upwards. These can also be planted about 10cm deep #fritillary #fritillaria #fritillaria-meleagris #snakesheadfritillary
Hi Pearl, I've planted about 10 I think in a pot - I'm trying some of my small bulbs for a better display hopefully, but I have another batch which will go in the garden directly. I may move these to the garden later, but as I'm looking for the pot display first I'll move them if right after they have flowered and the leaves have died back - it may even be Autumn 2016 before I do that 👍🏼
I have bought nectaroscordum siculum , and put half straight into the ground and half into pots. They are my favourite bulbs and wasn't 100% sure where to put them in our new garden. Makes sense I think to try some in pots first
