crocosmia - how do i get it to flower well?



Over the years, the flowering display of crocosmia will diminish due to overcrowding. You need to dig up the clump - you will find a whole mass of corms, one on top of another. Split off the largest corms at the top of each pile individually, removing all the lower ones. Give the soil a general feed and replant the big corms, discarding the rest and you should get a better display of flowers. Now is the best time to do it (I've just done mine)
