What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Eucomis or Pineapple Flower are so called because of the top of the flowers resemblance to a small pineapple. It is native of tropical and southern Africa. The exotic looking flowers rise from tufts of narrow foliage, the numerous tiny flowers are borne on a strong straight stem. As a rough guide you can fit three bulbs into a tub about 30cm across, though you may feel that they will be overpowered by their foliage in this situtation so planting in a sunny border with warm, fertile soil may be for the best.
