How do you encourage flowering, can you feed them? I have cut the spent flowers off the ones which have already flowered, but i want to know how to get them to flower again this spring>
Can you help me

Shelley,

I think that the effort this plant puts into this one big amazing flush of bright bulbous colour, means that convincing it to flower again is pushing it beyond its natural capabilities. Enjoy it while you can, cut off the dead flowerheads and consider that no amount of potassium enriched fertilser is gonna get another decent flush from it for this year.
