Top Tips

  • Plant in a sheltered position to protect blooms from high winds and heavy rain.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

Care Information

  • Plant in the autumn, 10-15cm deep, 15cm apart, in fertile, well-drained soil, in full sun or light shade.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove the flower heads once they have faded and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulbs for storing. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20C (65-68F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
