they are in pots at top of garden open to full sunlight

On plant Puschkinia



Hi Nigey you can either leave the bulbs in the pots to die back and plant out in your garden in autumn or plant them out now. Either way they will come again next Spring. You say they weren't too successful - what was the problem?

Thanks for your response. I think i may have planted too many in the pots. they seemed to grow quite tall, but fell over and were only in flower for a couple of weeks.

Two weeks is a reasonable time for them to be in flower
