Cultivation Instructions:

Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs as per the growing information below. Corydalis like a humus rich and free draining. In heavier soils such as clay, cultivate the top layer of soil and add grit and well rotted humus. This provides the drainage that they need. They naturalise well and will spread out to cover a wide area.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails.  Ideal foods are well rotted manures, grass clippings, tomato feed and bone meal.

Care tips:

Remember to feed well during the leaf and flowering stage to ensure growth for future years. In cold winters mulch well over winter to protect from severe frosts.

Start off with rootgrow or bulb starter to really help establish the root system.
