I remember seeing a terracotta pot planted with these forty years ago and thinking it was one of the most luxuriously beautiful things I’d ever clapped eyes on. I now grow it for myself every year, 7 or 8 bulbs in a pair of medium-sized terracottas to have on the doorstep and bring inside to show-off when people come round. It needs a nest of sticks to support it, and I cover the soil with moss and then boy-oh-boy, your table is dressed to impress!
