Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant bulbs in spring in fertile, well-drained soil, it is best to lay the bulbs on a layer of sand or grit as they do not like to sit in winter wet. A sunny, sheltered position is ideal. Mulch in colder areas to protect from frosts. May also be planted in a large container and overwintered in a greenhouse or conservatory.
Care Tips Stop watering from late autumn to allow a dormant period, begin again in spring and water regularly 2-3 times per week during the growing season. It is also a good idea to add some organic fertiliser in early spring and give an occasional liquid feed when watering.
Flowering July - September, 3-4 months from planting to flowering.
