I do a lot of other peoples garden visiting as part of the National Garden Scheme and always note how late their Crocosmia Lucifer is at flowering, when mine have been finished for weeks. This year, end of June and they are already halfway thru' flowering so by August (which is the time I see them in flower elsewhere), they'll be over and already the leaves starting to turn brown. Are my Crocosmia Lucifer unique? I live in Surrey, so not particularly tropical. Even on some of the best known garden supplier websites, they say the flowering period is August/September. This isn't just a one off fluke for this year - always happens, which frustrates me as I really miss the colour later in the season. Any ideas?
