Prior to Planting: Store in a cool airy place.
Planting Time: Autumn.
Aspect: Full sun.
Soil: Well drained with plenty of compost or well rotted manure dug into soil before planting.
Fertiliser: Blood and bone with complete garden fertiliser.
Planting: Plant corms 5 cm deep and about 10-15 cm apart.
Fertiliser: If planted in well-prepared soil they should not need fertilising
until the buds appear. Apply liquid fertiliser then and again after flowers have finished.
Watering: Water well after planting, keep moist. Once foliage starts dying down, stop watering.
After Flowering Care: Allow foliage to die down naturally. Bulbs may be left undisturbed for years, however if you have wet summer it is best to lift bulbs and store in a dry place and replant in the Autumnn. If you are lifting bulbs, do so as soon as the foliage dies down and store the clean bulbs in a dry, airy place.
