Scilla Peruviana
I have 5 of these about 2 inches tall, coming up in the border. They look strong and healthy and I have had them about 4 years. I just wonder if there is anything I can do to help them flower well as each year so far they have been a bit scrawny and disappointing.



I feed them after flowering with a hand full of slow release fertilizer granules or water in a general feed and leave the leaves to die back naturally.

Oh, too late for this spring then. Thanks Seaburngirl, I'll do ir next time round.

They like a dry summer. I don't water mine at all, but feed lightly when they start to come up in the late fall.

Thanks Wylie, it's worth trying a little feed then.
