Hi all,
I grew about a dozen Veltheimia bracteata bulbs from seed in 2011. They survived very low temperatures last winter (-15 deg C). OK, so now they are more or less ready to be transferred to their final planting site. Some of them have just started to grow again.
Has anyone any advice as to special care that I should take? Soil, site etc. Or would I be better advised to put them in a larger pot in the greenhouse for the winter?
Over to you...
Best

Mike
