I have chiondoxa but its only 1 inch high. I spaced them out as directed but they are so far apart as to look stupid.
Did I plant too far down?



Ours are not even showing through. They should get taller as they approach flowering.

Somerhing or somebody must have moved them!

Mine are not showing either. But come late Feb early March they will be up and flowering. I usually plant bulbs 3 times their depth so how deep did you plant yours?

They will spread over time and they will get taller as the weather improves. Ours are barely through the ground yet although I can see the breaking tips. I would not bother about digging them up and moving them because they are growing so they must be happy enough.If you planted more than 2" apart and 2" deep take a note of where they are and plant some more next year in between the ones you have.

I would leave them be and plant a bunch more to fill in the gaps. Mine never disappoint and yes they will spread albeit rather slowly. Their show is so fleeting.

I found that they clump up very quickly here. And if you do not dead head them, then they will seed around too. They flower very quickly from seed too.

To be honest I can't remember when I planted them or how deep. In future I think I'd better start a log. I kept detailed accounts of plants & bulbs in pots but after one year things did not go to plan & the memo pads were covered in mud etc. I always say this year I'll.......
