Believe it or not it’s been two months and these have stayed exactly like this. They have not attempted to open at all yet. One has even fainted at the anticipation 🤭 #oxalis #oxalisversicolour #oxalis-versicolour #candycanesorrel
My newly created bulb beds in the polytunnel are really starting to come alive now. This oxalis is a winter grower and is coming back with more growth than last year, and seems to be liking its new home.
Maybe next year Leslie. They should already be in flower by now but I got the bulb quite late so planted only a month ago. Keeping my fingers crossed we’ll see a flower this year although it was only a small bulb @lesliecole49
Oh that’s a shame Jane - did you have them in a pot? They are growing them in terracotta pots in the alpine house at Wisley at the moment, not one probably for planting in the ground. Might be worth having another go in a pot in the greenhouse perhaps? @pelly
