Hi, My new pizzicatos are finally blooming, but the trouble is that the buds are trying to open way down in the leaf axles, where they are squished by the foliage and they cannot open at all. They have absolutely no stems, not even an inch. It's very disappointing.
I'm hoping you can tell me there's something I can do about it? Is there something I can feed them to fix this problem?
This variety is supposed to have "strong stems". These have NO stems. Help!
Thanks in advance,
Karen
