My mail order Eremurus. Is it too skimpy/young to produce a flower this year?

Cannot promise it will flower but there is a very good chance that it will. Plant it about 6 to 8 inches deep, making sure to spread roots out. Before planting, mix in lots of organic material and some grit if on the heavier side. Ideally they need to be in a sheltered sunny position in good free draining soil. After planting feed with sulphate of potash, once you see new shoot emerging feed weekly with liquid tomato fertiliser. Hope this is of some help @tallplants @jacaranda

Thanks @Melvinprentice, I watched a YouTube video on planting foxtail lilies so think I planted ‘the aliens’ correctly. There is a ton of info available online but the bulk of it is repetitive or vague. For example: As a semi-amateur I’m unsure whether my foxtail tubers are just a babies, teenagers, or adult tubers. Guess I’ll have to wait and see.
