Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in a sheltered position in the garden. It is essential that they are exposed to early spring sunshine, but they must receive plenty of shade immediately after flowering and especially during the heat of the summer. They will thrive under deciduous trees and shrubs, or in crevices in the rock garden, performing best where there is good humidity.
Care Tips They respond well to a top-dressing of leaf-mould in autumn and an annual feed. Remove old leaves just before flowering.
