Planting

From Late Autumn TO Early Winter

Plant the corms at twice their depth in pots or in a cool green-house, or outdoors in a frost-free garden, in moist, free-draining soil or compost in a sunny position in late Autumn. The bulbs will not tolerate frost. The growing medium needs to be kept just moist - not wet - during the Winter, and then, as the leaves appear, still keep the soil moist, but not wet
