Similar to other issue (must be a common thing). Can you see what looks like a yellow pebble where you would have thought the fifth one would be? It's actually the tip of the flower bud below the grit level. Poor thing was never going to bloom properly so I cut it off. Fingers crossed for next year 🤞🏼 @brightcolours

Still waiting patiently for these #iris to open, but it's been so cold this last week. Maybe if I stare at them long enough.... 👀 #iris-reticulata #pots #irisreticulatanorthstar

Just checked the weather for Herts @juliesgarden and think it's going to be a little warmer next few days and nights. Might finally see them make a move 👍🏼

Aw, they'll come soon Rachel 😊, i think the first year always depends on when you planted them the year before and then they adjust properly to the weather the following year. These have been in pots since September and this particular one is an early flowering variety, but I've not yet seen any of my daffs or tulips emerge yet. Some of my other reticulatas are still some weeks off too @rachelbrooks
