Cultivation Instructions

Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 20cm and ensure that the soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer. Plant bulbs in well-drained, humus rich soil. They can be left undisturbed for a number of years.  Add some grit or organic matter to the soil to help aid drainage.

Care tips:

Sunny areas of the garden ideally not in direct sunlight.  Once they have finished flowering allow the stems to die back and remove debris. In general plant the bulbs three times their height deep.

Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as  bone meal or tomato food.
