I recall that a few of the listers had early blooms last year in the northern they were expecting bulbs to start going to sleep as well...Oct/Nov.


RE: strange things are happening with my bulbs

Danny, Do I recall in the past year that you had moved and had to relocate all your bulbs to your new place? Well if that's the case then maybe the digging up and moving of your bulbs has upset their timetable and they have to readjust...just a thought.

RE: strange things are happening with my bulbs

Hey Dangles, I'm in Adelaide, most of mine are still in full leaf with no signs of slowing down, and I was steadily getting flowers right through till March, the weather is still pretty warm here, 29 yesterday and nearly there again today, 2nd week in May, and I'm still having to water.. :-)

RE: strange things are happening with my bulbs

Umm, was gardening today and noticed a new scape from one of my H. Viridi Rascal. 7 have died back, 7 have full leaves and this one has a scape about 14 inches tall.. They haven't been moved and are all in the same pot..Weird..
