Hi everyone,
A couple months ago i was gifted two huge bulbs. They didn't have any leaves.
Most of my gardening here in the UK is in containers, pots so i planted them in plastic pots, quite large, in very gritty soil, but quite a lot of the bulb exposed.
Now one is starting to leaf out. Winter is near, rains a lot, little sunlight (location is shady anyway) what should i do? Leave them outside, cover/protect from rain/cold, bring them inside...a bit tricky as there's little room for two big pots.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

😕😕😕??? Not knowing what they are ? Where did you get them ?
Im guessing you started them outside. If so they mywell be outside variety. Put in proctecd area. They maybe inside variety all though. What zone you live in ?
Also send picture when they start growing so we all can ID them.

Drimia maritimashould be hardy in your zone but probably more hardy when planted in-ground. I would give the potted plants some protection from the cold since they are in pots.
