Eucomis

Do I cut back stems and leaves?
Or leave to die back normally like
Daffodils?
Thank you

After flowering- It is important with all bulbs to allow the leaves to die back naturally after flowering. Winter protection- Eucomis are not fully hardy and the bulbs need to be protected from frost. Apply a mulch to protect from hard frosts. Cover with 10cm thick of bark or leaf mould.

I have just bought bulbs at Bloom and I have forgotten the name of what looks like an octopus, can you remind me please? Also Jonathan is a very helpful chap.

This sounds like Eremurus to me. I have attached some of the varieties we have online for you:

Eremurus Bungei (harts1124)

Eremurus Cleopatra (harts1125)

Eremurus Robustus (harts1126)

I will be sure to pass on your comments to Jonathan. Thanks ever so much.

Best wishes
