I've never grown them from tubers as I buy plug plants; however I am going to see if they have any tubers when I take them up in autumn. That said, although my potted-on plug plants took absolutely ages to get going, they're going great guns now and producing big leaves with massive flowers with no leaf drop. I wonder if the strange weather has anything to do with how the tubers reacted during storage which has affected them.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.
