Sowing, Seeds, Planting These bulbs have been specially prepared for growing indoors. For best results, plant as soon as possible after arrival but if you do not want to plant them straight away, we recommend keeping them somewhere cool and dark (like an outdoor shed or garage) at around 8-15°C before planting. You may notice a small green shoot coming out of the bulb when you receive them, this is the first sign of growth and should not be removed. Use a loam-based compost, lightened with some grit, place the bulb with its pointy tip just below the soil surface, and fill in around it. Keep the compost moist but not dripping wet.
Care Tips Plant the bulbs just below the soil surface, pointy end up with 5-8cm (2-3in) between each bulb. After planting, store them somewhere cool, like a garage, and move them inside the house once the shoots are 4-5cm tall. Use a decorative nest of twigs as support as they grow to keep them from flopping.
Flowering Once shoots are 4-5cm tall, bring them inside the house and they will flower in about 4-6 weeks.

Out of 20 bulbs, only 9 are growing. Out of these, 3 have no heads on them. Extremely disappointed with quality even though I followed all planting instructions

Beautifully made troughs, just what I wanted and will add character to the garden. Lovely quality and just as shown/described on website, would definitely recommend.

I'm a recently new customer to Sarah Raven (since September 2019) and cannot fault the service of the Sarah Raven team. Excellent products, great delivery and packaging. Very helpful in my various queries regarding sowing seeds and planting. I adore browsing through the catalogue and viewing the website, lots more purchases to come! It's a wonderful way to create and enhance your garden.

I received the package (well presented) and duly followed the instructions on how to plant, where to leave them etc. I did all this only to find that only 50% of the bulbs actually came up (I am hoping that they will 'naturalise' for next year). They are also not standing up unsupported, I may have brought them in too early, or they need water, which I have given them. If you have any comments to help improve them I would be grateful.

I have received my order today from Sarah Raven, it arrived on time and very well packed, it arrived in excellent order with care instructions and I am very pleased with the basket with its moss covering. I am sure that I will also be very pleased when the bulbs break through and flower with their wonderful scent. Thank you. As always I am very pleased with the service and products, Paul Voller
