Cultivation Instructions:

Soils are best cultivated to a depth of 15cms and they like a humus rich and free draining soil. Where the soil is heavier such as clay, cultivate the top layer of soil and add grit and well rotted humus.  They naturalise incredibly well and will spread out to cover a wide area. These are a  lovely group of bulbs that are ideal to grow in semi to full shade. Ideal in the borders/garden or in containers and also rockeries.

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 they grow and bulk up well for subsequent years growth. In cold winters mulch well over winter to protect from the severe frosts.

Small specie bulbs like these benefit from using bulb starter when first planting.

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