    Double form Bloodroot blossom this year.
    (Sanguinaria canadensis multiplex)

    I thought they were native in the East coast and I worry about Vancouver's weather is hard for them.
    So I try to get another two different plants to grow together. The result shows they like the way to live here. I got 12 flowers this year, more 8 flowers than 2015. I'll try to make more different combination this Autumn.

    Gee, very nice, that is quite an increase. Are you fertilizing them ?

    Yes, I use organic tomato fertilizer that bought from GardenWorks to feed them.

    Interesting, here in the ground they doubled each year for a few years, then quit increasing. I guess the nutrients were used up. They have been quite hardy.
    I'll try fertilizing a little, thank you.

    You are very welcome.
    Due to I plan to move out from here years later.
    So I plant most of my green friends in pots.
    Pots' nutrients is limited.That's why I feed them a little bit fertilizer.

    Is that possible they stop to increase is because they need more space?
    I divide them every two years. I grow bloodroot from one.

    I think they could use a little compost or fertilizer to keep multiplying here, and less competition from any moss.
