This is the third year that I have bought a Lemon Star bulb - and they never fail to bloom with the most wonderful light lemon flowers. My current bulb has two flowers in bloom and a third bud on its way. Really pleased with it.

I have grown my Lemon Star in a forcing jar in water and it is amazing. Two large flower heads with individual blooms measuring 6 ins or so across. Still going strong after two weeks of blooming. Totally different class than the usual 'High Street' varieties. My only challenge is keeping it upright! Any ideas of how to do this when grown in water - apart from leaning against a wall?
