Cultivation Instructions

Cultivate soils to a depth of 4-5″ (10-12cm) then add humus and grit to ensure good drainage.  Plant bulbs 2-3″ (6-9cm) deep and water in well.

Enhance the soil with a light covering of leaf mulch or similar. During the first 6 months make sure that the soil does not dry out. However be careful not to overwater. After this time they can be left alone to naturalise.

Aspect: Woodland type areas and plant immediately on arrival in well drained soil. Enhance the nutrient content of the soil by adding bonemeal.
