Peacock Orchides not flowering

SwedboySwedboy Posts: 380

Bought a bag of these last year for a pound in poundland for me and a friend at work. Both sets came up but only hers flowered. The ones I planted in pots are dead but the ones in the border are doing well and have for the second year come up with long lush leaves. Alas I have yet to see anything that resembles a flower. They are planted alongside a fence and gets driect sunlight for about half the day. Are they just bulking up (being from less of a reputable sournce) or quite  cranky to get to flower?

    They are quite cranky, I spotted one bud out of 25 this morning.

    Damn. I thought the only problem with them was the survival in damp conditions. One of mine has prodcued a flower now. They are stunning so I hope that they will flower better next year.
