Flowering Season

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Densely-packed short spikes of fragrant deep-blue/purple bell-shaped flowers in spring.

 

Planting Bulbs

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Divide a cluster of established plants and carefully separate the bulbs. They should come apart easily and there will likely be lots of offset bulbs to collect. Plant them where you wish, and they should start spreading from their new spots, giving even more of the pretty little plants next season.

 

Propagation by seed

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Save seeds in mid-summer and sow from late summer. Sow seed under glass. Plant seedlings out in nursery rows after a year.
