Cultivation
These bulbs require very well-drained soil as they are intolerant of wet soil when dormant. Handle the fragile bulbs carefully and plant at four times their own depth.

Description

Dainty, nodding flowers tipped with gold on surprisingly robust stems. They’ll do well provided they are not planted somewhere excessively wet, particularly when they are dormant so choose a spot which won’t get waterlogged.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips

Can be naturalised in a free draining gravel garden that doesn’t retain moisture in the winter.
