Why can't I grow Crocosmia?
This is the third time that I have tried and failed to grow Crocosmia. Why?
I planted bulbs in winter and tried to keep them watered but not water logged. the Heremocalis (Day Lily) plants around the same bed are doing OK so what went wrong?
This month the RHS magazine featured Crocosmia and noted that Montbretia can often go mad and take over. Not here it wouldn't. But just to give the miserable sulking shoots in the Crocosmia bed something to think about I put the magazine with its glorious cover picture in there - just take a look at what you ought to look like!
