Asters flowering now
Hello, I planted 3 miniature asters in an alpine bed last year. This year they all look strong and healthy, but one of the three has been flowering madly since mid-May and one is threatening to flower. The third looks as I would expect for this time of year. Is this early flowering caused by the dry Spring that we had? I did give them a good water once or twice when a lot of things in the garden were drooping. Should I have watered them more? The supplier said that they were suitable for an alpine bed, and that they flower in Autumn like other asters. Any thoughts?
