Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant corms out in an open, sunny position in a fertile, loamy, moist, but well-drained, soil, which doesn’t dry out in summer or become waterlogged in winter. They also thrive when planted in raised beds. Best planted in spring, with the corms set 5cm deep. Containerised plants should be planted so that the top of the compost is level with the surrounding soil.
