I would like to purchase 8 Cardiocrinum bulbs and hope that they will be as mature and therefore as successful as the ones I bought from you in 2018! They were a real show stopper, thank you very much.
Please advise of availability,
kind regards,
Doris Slingsby

Hi Doris

Yes we have top-size Cardiocrinum bulbs available to purchase online.

Growing tree Lilies in limestone

This question was asked by

Do you have Tree Lilies that will thrive on Portland Dorset, we are limestone based really.

Tree lilies are happy in any well-drained soil type. Alternatively, they can be planted in pots.

We have lots of tree lilies here:

How to avoid bulb from rotting

This question was asked by
Fliss T


As I am new to gardening please could you advise me how to avoid daffodil, tulip and crocus bulbs from rotting when planting in my garden boarders and pots.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you very much.

With Kind Regards

Fliss Tadrous

Hi Fliss

You need to ensure your soil has plenty of drainage. You can add some horticultural grit to your soil to encourage good drainage. But if you have clay soil, then you will need to plant your bulbs in pots and not in the garden. Hope this help.

Hi there,

Unfortunately we won’t have any Lilium Carbonero this year – have you seen Largo? This is a beautiful variety similar to Carbonero.

Begonia aftercare

This question was asked by
Graham S

The wonderful show of Begonias is still continuing.I would like to plant the Autumn bulbs in many of the pots and baskets so can I cut the begonias down to 1” above the corm and remove the corm to be washed and dried ready for storage until next year.Thanks for the top quality corms great results. Look forward to your advise.

Hi Graham

That’s fantastic – so pleased to hear how happy you are with your begonias from us.

Once all the stems on your begonias have died off naturally, you can cut them back, dig out the tubers, clean and dry them before storing them away in sand in a dry, frost-free area like a garage or shed.
Replant the next February.
