  • Plant in loam based potting compost JI No.2.  Plant the bulb with the neck and shoulders just above the surface.  Place in dappled light or full sun, water sparingly until in growth, you can provide base heat to quicken the process.  Feeding around every two weeks with a good balanced fertilizer until the flower bud starts to open. 

    After flowering remove the flower stem as it withers and turns brown to about 1.5cm from the neck of the bulb, allow the leaves to die back naturally, they will need plenty of sunlight, once the chance of frost has gone in spring you can put them outside in a sunny position; reduce the amount of water it is important for the bulb to stay dry and the soil just moist but not wet. Shelter from heavy rain.  

    When dormant leave in the pot (they hate root disturbance) place in a shed garage or greenhouse to rest, repeat this process when ready to grow again replacing the top 4cm of compost with new compost. They should be re potted in fresh compost around every three years.
