winter care & blooming issues with Acidanthera
I've had these bulbs in ground for couple years. First year they bloomed. This year they came back very full but did not bloom. I am thinking because although in full sun, they were overshadowed by Asiatics and Orientals. Any ideas of what blooming problem is? (Zone 7)
Also wondering if I am supposed to leave brown foliage and let it die off naturally or cut it at some point this fall or winter? I ask because I see different bulbs have different needs. I have tuberoses which say to cut back after first frost. This was first year for them with no blooms, but think that was due to being overtaken by marigolds. Was that the problem, or do they not bloom first year?
Thanks for any feedback,
