madness!

vetivert8(NI-NZ zone 9a)February 26, 2010

From a poor, frazzled wretch who has spent the past week sorting dormant bulbs in pots in someone else's garden:

never put a pot of anything anywhere near a clump of Freesias or Sparaxis. Never.

They will fling their seeds from afar and there will be little insidious colonies infesting Everything.

The 'fries' of the bulb world, as in Erythronium - and fries, Fritillaria - and fries, miniature daffs - and fries, Rhodohypoxis - and fries.

Never mind. The autumn Leucojum are showing their wee pixie hats and the autumn crocuses are starting. Good things ahead.

Oh, to be able to grow Freesia! :-) And reseeding too. :-D
Mine didn't come back the second year unless lifted for the winter. :-)
I love the fragrance. ;-)

Fritillaria don't do very well in my garden either. I must have overcrowded or over watered them.
And I just planted 25 Erythronium 'Pagoda' last fall. I hope to see them up this spring. :-D
What is the problem with these bulbs down in NZ?
