I have a clump of Crocosmia


Should I lift the corms and store over winter, or
just transplant them, and if so, when?


Anytime you want, basically. You can't kill crocosmia, heaven knows
I've tried - and always the bloody stuff returns. Some of the corms
must be over two foot deep - that's how deep we went last time we
tried to annihilate the damned plant!

Gulp!

Compliments of 40tude Dialog 'insert wrap override character'

My crocs are orange, and I don't know why I didn't think of cutting them
for indoors before I trampled them to get to the beans. :-(


Oh!


All is not lost. Yesterday I h'entertained a lady to dinner, and
whilst she was preparing the salad I sneaked into the garden and cut a
decent bunch of Montbretia, which I placed in a vaze on the table.

Right pretty they looked...

Didn't they drop their flowers everywhere? Mine are just going to
seed now. I hope the lady was your beloved? :-)

That's an interesting value of 'entertained'! You entertained her to
dinner and she prepared it ;-)

They went through a period of deep unpopularity, but nowadays there
are varieties with flowers (often larger than the original) in all
shades from yellow through to rich red.

They're well worth growing for colour at this time of year, when a
lot of other thing have gone over. And the stems continue to be
attractive even when the flowers are over.

They certainly are Kay, I have a huge splash of red in the garden with
the C.Lucifer. I have divided them for neighbours, planted them in
other areas, but still they multiply, saying that, I would not be
without them, they are ginormous.

Any chance of some corms when you come over next?

No. She volunteered to bring along a side salad to accompany the
pasta bake which I cooked.

Dammit! I even washed up!

"Even"?

Washing up is the least of the requirements if you entertain ;-p

I'm afraid that 'helpless' male' thing caught my eye, too. ;-)

Helpless my a***!
This male does everything for himself!

I make a rule that at my house she does nothing in the kitchen, but on
this occasion she suggested bringing a salad.

Likewise when I go to her house she does it all, but I cook for us much
more often than she does...
I'm rather more organised, and have more room here.
