@porto this is this year's growth so far on #gloriosa-superba-sparkling-stripe I managed to remember to dig it up and store it last year. I ordered a #gloriosa-superba-rothschildiana which is the one I think you've got and nothing happening on that yet

Love this but I won’t have it until Emily is a bit older as she wanders around the garden and loves touching the flowers, I’d be worried all the time 😱🤔

Ok ok I'll pot you back up. Last years tuber is shooting already #gloriosa-superba-sparkling-stripe Seems weird, I'm potting up and finding space in the greenhouse rather than every windowsill in the house 😂

I'm not sure where you are @novicegardenlover but they're not frost hardy. I need to dig up the tuber and start it off again indoors next year

Hi Julie. I'm in the Southern Caribbean; no chance of frost here. Wishing you a great fresh start next year.

How lovely. I could grow all the tropical plants I love there @novicegardenlover

Yes you could. No tulips or daffs though.

I'm not a huge fan of spring flowering bulbs. I've only bought orange tulips for some pots to brighten up the garden in spring. If I had your climate they'd be no need for extra colour and I'd save a fortune on horticultural fleece 😂😂😂 @novicegardenlover

Can’t wait to see these! I’ve tried them once before but didn’t do it right . I think they rotted before it even surfaced.

I bought one of these last year which didn't do anything. This year I bought another one and asked for advice. I'd planted the previous one vertically instead of horizontally 😂😂😂 Its a very long tuber so I had to improvise with an old sweet box and I have a shoot 😍 #gloriosa-superba-sparkling-stripe
