In a pot at the back of my house, I have had some bulbs which I planted over four years ago. They have never flowered and this year I was giving up on them, even though I've been treating them with some of Richard Jackson's Flower Power, when suddenly a flower stem pops up.
Now, this is a current blog and the flower has appeared at the very end of October and is likely to be at its best in November. The leaves pretty much stay green all year round, albeit they get a bit damaged with a heavy frost. The flowers are fragrant and come from a stem that's a bit like an Amaryllis. But does anyone know what these flowers are?!
So, if you have on your Percy Thrower hats, ahem, I mean your Richard Jackson hats, identify my plant. I’ll post some more pictures as it develops to give you some more clues but you have to put a name to it.
Now don’t ask Richard Jackson himself, or your bar bill will go through the roof! I wonder if Titchmarsh is cheaper!!?
