Description

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!

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

After flowering leave the foliage to die back naturally if you want to reuse the bulbs.
