- Plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards, 20cm deep approx 20-30cm apart. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. Once they have finished flowering, leave them to die back naturally to help bulk up the bulbs for next year.
Flowering on the cusp of March and April, I adore Imperial fritillaries in sun or dappled shade, in pots or in the border, in bud, flower, or even seedpod. Their garden architecture is second to none.
