My Scilla has not flowered this year,any thoughts ?

On plant Scilla peruviana



If its been outside all winter, it may have died - these are frost tender. However, you've asked why it hasn't flowered, which implies there are leaves - how did you treat it after flowering last year? Did you feed it or cut the leaves?

If its got leaves currently, feed it weekly with a balanced liquid feed until the leaves disappear.

If they are extremely crowded, you also may want to dig them up and separate them after the leaves dissappear. Scilla peruviana can also take a long time to bloom in the spring. Mine have sometimes waited until May.
