HelloI have 2 bulbs which I purchased in AMsterdam in April

United Kingdom Gb

I have 2 bulbs which I purchased in AMsterdam in April. I think I am too lat to plant out? One is Gloriosa Rothschildiana and the other is Fritalarrial Imperilis. Do I need to keep another year?



No get them both into the ground as soon as possible. Neither of them will do well sitting around dry for over a year.

I agree with Mg get them planted ASAP!

I often purchase from a Internet mail order company and they send me offers as a regular customer, usually they are past there sell by date and they want rid of them!

So on occasions I buy them if I think I am getting value for money!

OK I know it may be too late in the season for me to get the benefit of them in the current year, but come the following year, I often find that I am generally ahead of the game, and I get the plants I bought cheaper than those on offer at the 'normal' time.

As I see it; they are quite welcome to grow on in my otherwise underused cold frame until normal planting out time.

So as I see your situation; if they don't perform this year by planting them now, you are off to a good start for next year!....Tg
