9 out of 20 (Tigridia pavonia (Tiger flower))

Ten out of my mixed packet of 20 Tigridia have flowered. They are all tones of yellow, apricot and pink. The other 10 have become a bit trodden on! No reds, no problem already have red clumps.

They are in 4 pots of 5 sunk in the ground, will lift and see if I can combine the same colours together, that leaves me with 10 that didn't flower, put those in 2 mixed pots, still awaiting a white.

Amy, I don't think the remaining ones will flower because I have damaged them with my feet.
3pbit, think you would have to make sure they were well drained in the garden.
Dd, Not well done, stepping on them!

I am also going to take the seed from a yellow and a pink to increase the quantity, have done that with my original red, which is now growing outside.

I am not surprised you trod on them, you need to be as nimble as a mountain goat in your garden!!
We have never grown them in pots, only in the borders, my problem is I tend to dig them up, when planting on top of them! in fact I think I have a large container standing on top of them lol

If I had more paths Dd, I would have even less planting space!!
