            Another one popped up, the first one has flower buds Just a couple of quick questions.
            1.is the flower small because of it's growing conditions or because it's a new bulb?
            2.now it's starting to flower do I need to feed it?
            Thanks in advance.20200320_173420.jpg

              I've got a lot of Fritillaries popping up in the border, mazambo. The size of the shoot doesn't necessarily mean a weak shoot or plant and you should find it growing on nicely. If that is fresh compost in the pot then there will be some nutrients in there but it wouldn't harm to give it a weak solution of, say, Tomato Feed or Miracle Gro once a week. Let us all know how you get on.!!:thumbsup::cat-kittyandsmiley::coffee:
