It's shouldn't but I'm always surprised when i see others pictures and the plant is in a different stage as its in another part of the country or a sunnier position. Did you get them this year @flof1952 ? If not, did you bring them in for the winter?
I bought the bulbs earlier this year Dean .......planted them up and kept them in the greenhouse until May. Before the frosts I will put them back in the greenhouse in the pot and hopefully get them over the winter period.
