Top Tips

  • Ideal for cut flowers.
  • Plant in a sheltered position to protect heavy blooms from wind.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

Care Information

  • Plant from September to November, 10-15cm deep, 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil in a sheltered spot to protect the heavy blooms from wind.
  • Keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Remove the flower heads once they have faded and apply a weekly fertiliser for best results next season.
  • Once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulb for storing. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20C (65-68F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn.
