3 year's ago I planted crocosmia lucifer, globe master allium and large agapanthus in large container pots in a sunny, sheltered spot in the garden.
Every year they have flourished and spread, having more flowers each spring/summer.
However, to my upset, this spring none of them have shooted. There's nothing there at all, and the allium and agapanthus should be almost ready to flower now, never mind not grown.
I dug in the crocosmia pot and found a bulb that seemed mushy and dead... so is it likely that all 3 of these bulb plants were killed in the heavy frost and freezing conditions we had this winter?
Everything else in the garden is hanging on in there and growing as normal.
