I purchased a yellow Clivia miniata many years ago from Logee’s Greenhouse in Connecticut. It never bloomed, it got scale, it looked lousy, and yet I couldn’t quite part with it. This year, I put in the basement and left it for the winter with instructions to be watered once a month. When we returned the first of April, there was a bloom spike. Ta da!
Outside it is not so lovely. We are forecast to have freezing rain and possible icing today and tonight. The daffodils have buds on them so I will be out covering some of them with buckets so the weight of the ice doesn’t ruin them.
The Hepatica bloomed Friday when we had a warm interlude. I think I will cover them as well.
Ah, spring in New England. The roller coaster ride continues……..
