Top Tips

Plant Crocosmia corms in clumps for maximum effect

Care Information

Planting Advice for Crocosmia:

  • Corms should be planted like any other bulb and are easiest to plant if you just dig a hole about 10cm (4in) deep and space a handful about 2cm (1in) apart. This will give you a good-sized clump straight away and you can lift and divide clumps as they expand.
  • If you prefer a more spaced display, then plant them in clumps in groups of 5 about 10cm (4in) apart. If your soil is heavy, add some horticultural grit to the planting hole.

Aftercare Advice for Montbretia:

  • Water well and regularly.
  • Mulch corms in winter to preserve moisture.
  • Lift and divide clumps in spring if flowering diminishes.
  • Cut back dead leaves in spring.
