Planting Advice

Plant 10 cm deep. Grows well in thick clumps and should be dug up every couple of years so that the bulblets can be saved for faster multiplication.

Watering needs

Keep well-watered in spring as this is its main growth phase, and also when in flower from winter to spring.

Pruning Advice

Bulbs become dormant in summer so allow them to dry out and let the foliage die back before cutting it off.
