Hi Im worried I may have planted my crocosmia corms upside down and wondered will they turn themselves round for next year? I am an enthusiastic novice!!! Thanks.



Most of us do, dont worry they wil still grow and grow and grow as they are very invasive.

they will be fine just a little slower in appearing.

Its amazing how plants know 'which way is up', even if we don't. This corm grows a new one on top of the old one so it will sort itself out.

It may or may not flower this year, but they will grow like normal next year.
