Anonymous added on May 10, 2014 | Answered

A few years ago I planted 12 Galadioli bulbs and each year only 2 bloom. The rest of leaves I have them close to a sidewalk in a crowded area with bushes and other flowers. What am I doing wrong?

It could be a nutrient issue, such as too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorus in the soil. I would get your soil tested to know for certain, but in the meantime you could try adding some additional phosphorus-rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil around your plants. This will help encourage more blooms.
