Crinums blooming already!
I read on Marcelle Sheppard's website this winter that not only does she topdress her crinums with manure in the fall (which I have been doing for years), but she also fertilizes them in the spring. I gave them all a cup of Plant Tone in early March and yesterday morning I walked outside and saw scapes up on my Milk and Wine lilies! I will have blooms tomorrow for sure. This is a full two months earlier than ever. Is it the fertilizer or the weather?
