Eucomis (4 replies)
I have eucomis bulbs growing in a large container. I've had them for 18 months now. They overwintered well but they're getting crowded now. Can I dig them up and divide them? What is the best time of year to do this?
As they become dormant in Winter I would have though they can be moved when the foliage has died down. Spacing about 3in between bulbs should do it. If we get a bad winter though, you might want to get the container in a greenhouse or give it some protection
Saving Ryan's Privet
Thank you Old Chap. I'll give it a go but it'll probably be next year as it's still flowering atm.
They usually produce viable seed as well after flowering, I have grown many like this (even Sparkling Burgandy)
My eucomis did have seeds but I didn't do anything with them this year. They've all died back now. It's so mild still. I wonder if we'll have snow later in 2016? I'll have to wait until March/April time before I do anything with them I reckon.
Roll on the summer!
