Planting

From Early Autumn TO Late Autumn

Plant out bulbs 8cm deep into flowering position from early to late autumn, ideally in a south or west facing sheltered position. They grow best in moist but well drained soil, acid to slightly alkaline (pH 5-7.5). Plant where they will receive maximum sunshine.
