If you mean Saponaria ocymoides by tumbling ted (known here as bouncing bet), it flowers early April - if you bought the plant later than that, it may have finished flowering before you planted it.

Thank you so much for your help bamboo yes it was planted in July so I will look forward to next Aprill. You may have guessed I am a novice gardener.

I have Saponaria 'tumbling Ted' I found it was slow to take off but well worth the wait. After it flowers in the spring I give it a trim and it flowers again late summer, but it takes some years to get to this stage.

Sorry I didn't welcome you, didn't notice you'd only just joined, Gs. As Drc says, trim over once its finished flowering - actually, what am I saying, give it a jolly good haircut unless you've got loads of space for it to cover! Something to look forward to, despite its invasive habit, its beautiful when in full flower, I have it here. I did cut mine back hard, but its every bit as big now as it was before I did...

I just realised I said early April for flowering - I have to tell you that this year, everything's late - I seem to recall it flowered last year mid April/end of April, not early April, but I suspect it'll be mid May this year, no sign of flowers yet.

I see from my dated photos that mine always flowers from the beginning of May

I went and closely inspected mine today - yes, there are tiny buds present - difficult to see, but they're there.
