Trilliums

PoddingtonPPoddingtonP Posts: 196

I was given some trillium rhizomes in early autumn last year (T. erectum and T. grandiflorum I think).  I didn't have any ground ready to put them in, so potted them up in pots of compost. I know that they don't grow well in pots, but didnnt have any choice at that point.

There is no sign of them yet. Should I be seeing shoots yet? Or are they doomed?

I haven't dared have a poked yet. I'm in North Yorkshire.

    Hi PP., I bought some rhizomes last autumn, and the shoots have just started to appear, in not so sunny South Yorkshire. I dont think I would worry yet.

    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    OK. Will try and be patient. If they have survived, I think i need to find some way of chicken proofing them from next doors chucks. 

    I'm thinking cheap wire hanging baskets as a cloche to let them get going.

    I bought one of the dark flowered ones last year, and up to now I have a bare pot, glad to know there's still time, also in North Yorkshire.
