Scarlet Beetle and Fritillarias!

This question was asked by
Brian C

Not a question but an additional piece of advice re the Lily beetle. If you have any fritillarias in your garden, look for the lily beetle on them as soon as they begin to grow. Last year I didn’t and then found some were almost leafless as a result of that damned beetle.

Thank you for your email!

Yes – Unfortunately the Scarlet beetle likes Fritillarias as well. We advise this on our Care Instructions page for each Fritillaria variety. As you say Brian, keep a look for these pests and try to use the Garlic Spray to keep them at bay. Thanks again.

Good evening, I have recived my Lutea & Persica bulbs today. I must say I was completely flabergasted by the size of your bulbs, I honestly was. They are humongous. They are easy triple the size of bulbs I have bought elsewhere which cost more. I will certainly only be buyomgall my future bulbs from you. A great big thank you for superb bulbs at a fantastic price.
Regards…… Sylvia.

You’re very welcome. Thank you for your feedback, it’s always good to hear from a happy customer!

Best wishes
