Cultivation Instructions

Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 30cm and ensure soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer.  Plant in well-drained, humus rich soil and 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:

Plant in the sunnier areas of the garden but ideally not in full sun.  Once they have finished flowering allow the stems to die back and remove debris. As a rule of thumb the bulbs should be planted three times their height deep.

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