Very disappointing. Took a long time to establish and have never bloomed.

Took ages to get going, thought I had lost them(3). Then bingo! Saw some shoots and now have sturdy plants. I believe the hot dry summer was the cause even though I watered regularly.

Disappointed with this one. The bulb did not want to grow despite leaving it for many months.

The service was excellent and the bulbs appeared to be in good condition, but they have not flowered! The leaves are handsome and I shall leave them in the ground and hope for better things next year.
I started them in a pot, perhaps they would have been better planted straight into the ground?
