Q. When do cockscomb and Harsingar plants flower

I have plants of Harsingar (Coral Jasmine) which have not flowered for one year. When do I expect it to flower? I planted Cockscomb (Celosia) in April. There is no flowering till now. When do they flower?

A.

For plants that aren't flowering, there are two basic causes to be considered: insufficient light, and too much nitrogen. The latter problem may be helped by working bone meal into the soil, and using less nitrogen-rich fertilizer. Here are two articles on these plants that might offer some insights: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/jasmine/non-flowering-jasmine.htm

I urge you to consult the resources available to you at the Delhi Botanical Garden to help you with any gardening problems you may have.

These plants don't propagate from cuttings, but you can gather seeds from your neighbor's plant, and start those. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/cockscomb/growing-cockscomb-flowers.htm

Q. Will Cockscomb survive indoors during winter

Will Cockscomb survive indoors during Colorado winter? I would like to bring 10 plants indoors for the winter. I know they are annuals; however, I would like to try.

Once the plants have flowered they will not produce any new plants or flowers. Celosia is an annual. You can however collect seeds for next spring.

Here is a link with more information.
