Hi all, I am thinking of buying some kniphofia tawny king 9cm pots, does anyone know if they would be likely to flower this year, thanks



unlikely but it does depend on how big the plant is in the 9cm pot. that's not a very big and in my experience the plants they put in them don't tend to be filling the pot either. are they mail order?

Hi sbg yes from crocus, there is a 2 lt pot but I presume I may have the same with that too, plus do you think they are likely to survive winter in sunny south facing spot, thanks again :) ps I suppose I could wait to try and get some in flower but wouldn't think that many places do them :)

well the one in a 2l pot will be a mature [if that's a word] specimen and I would expect that to flower. But it will be much more expensive. depends if you can wait a year or 2 for flowers. 9cm isn't even 4 inches so it is a very small pot.

Thanks Sbg I will probably go for the bigger one I'll shop around :)
