New York: one woman, one garden, twelve seasons.
I try and I try, but I can't seem to get English bluebells to work for me. I planted them in Carroll Gardens. I've planted them in Westchester. They come up looking anemic and never bloom. I researched what they like and I think I place them in appropriate spots. Does it just take more than a year for these wee bulbs to get established and bloom? I wanted the English because they are supposed to be fragrant, but I wonder if I will eventually have to settle for the Spanish which are larger and don't seem as wildflowery.
Hi KlausGood question. The BBG bluebells are Hyacinthoides hispanica 'Excelsior', so...not English, with which I have no personal experience.Hyacinthoides non-scripta are the English ones, and I wonder why you are having problems...Anemic. Odd. Let me do some research.
