I was just saying on my gardening blog that it’s time to buy some new bulbs for the garden. My oriental lilies didn’t come up this year and neither did my Lucifer crocosmia.
I think I know why my lovely red crocosmia didn’t come up though … Chris got out in the garden this past spring before I did, and he thought he was doing me a favor by tidying up the garden beds. I think he might have pulled out the crocosmia. It would have looked like long dead grass in the spring and he might not have noticed the tiny bulbs at the ends when he pulled them out of the ground.
Hopefully I can find some new crocosmia bulbs in the store. Perhaps I’ll go later today and have a look.
Do you grow Crocosmia? It’s pretty easy to grow. Well, provided that no one pulls it out on you in the Spring.
