ERITHRONIUMS .......On Gardeners' World this evening (UK tv) they showed an enthusiast growing, in abundance, these beautiful spring flowers. Has any one here personal experience of growing them and any tips to give for us who would like to try them in their own garden? They are so beautiful and such a wide range of colours it is difficult to overlook them. Many thanks. John.



I have them growing in my garden ,I got them from a friend out of her garden about 3 yrs ago.

And this yr has been there best as they have bloomed for the 1st time.

I grow four or five different ones. They are woodland bulbs, growing a few inches tall, for a position in light shade in a soil that does not dry out.

they are usually trouble free and easy to grow. I have several cultivars and they like some light shade and thrive in the woodland fringes. Mine are predominantly in the edge of the canopy from my Beech tree.
