Planting

From Early Autumn TO Late Autumn

Bulbs should be planted in the autumn. They can be planted in a wide variety of growing situations but be most floriferous if planted in a sunny, moist but not waterlogged site. The bulbs are rounded, with small pointy ends. Plant the points facing upwards. Plants may also be divided in autumn after the leaves have withered with the individual divisions being planted in a moist, sunny site.
