Suitable to be planted in many varied soil types as long as they are free draining, in heavier soils add grit or well rotted organic matter to help with drainage. In lighter soils such as sand add humus matter which will help to retain nutrients and water. Cultivate the soils to a depth of 15-20cms and plant bulbs 10cms deep and 10cms apart. When planting in containers the distance apart can be reduced to 5cms if required. Protect the early growth in the spring from slugs and snails and remove dead heads after flowering to get the best from them.
