I'm so excited the blackberry lilies in the front containers have buds. I planted them last year and just had the foliage this year I'll finally see the blooms and I can wait. The ones in back haven't put up stocks yet but I'm sure that's because I replaced about 25% of the soil in the containers with compost this spring
which the area where they are in the back didn't get any at all. It's on the slope and I just wasn't up to climbing up there and trying to level it so I could amend it without it all falling down on me lol.
