Why are my Polyanthuses flowering in August?
I have some red polyanthuses that last year were grown in pots. I forgot about them and in the spring they were stunted and dried out. They did flower in the spring but the flowers were short and after a few days were pulled off by a teratorial cock pheasant (i saw it dioing it and think it didn't like the colour). I split the plants in May and replanted in a shady primula bed in good humous-rich moist soil. Low and behold the plants are now in full flower in mid August and have never looked better (See photo). Is this normal?
