Oxalis Burgundy Shamrock - I planted some corms a few weeks ago and there is no sign of growth. I even dug up one of the corms to see if it had rooted at all. Am I expecting too much too soon? They are in pots in the greenhouse, have been regularly watered and are out of direct sunlight.



Yes you are expecting too much too soon. I'd have planted the corms last autumn.

Thanks for the answer MG. I only received them a few weeks before I planted them so I had no choice about when to plant them! Should I just carry on watering and keep an eye on them? When would they start to shoot normally?

Normally they would be starting to shoot now but as they was planted late I'm not sure... just be patient and don't over water.
