Fritillaria Imperials, Persica and Pontica and Verticillata, grow in full sun and fertile well drained soil. Plant around at a depth that is around 4 times their diameter. Plant Fritillaria Imperials with the bud slightlky tilted to avoid water getting inside the bulb and rotting it. Plant around 10-20 per square meter. Fritillaria Meleagris need humus rich soil that is not allowed to dry out. Pant in full sun to partial shade. They prefer a damp meadow or woodland conditions and flourish in cool damp summers. Allow around 50-75 per square meter. Fritillaria Elwesii, Michailowski and Pontica like fertile, well drained soil. Plant in full sun or light shade. They do not like wet conditions. Allow around 50-75 per square meter.
I’ve ordered this year from Peter Nyssen. Having rung up on a few occasions to add to my online order and request certain delivery dates, staff at Peter Nyssen couldn’t have been any nicer and I’ve found their bulbs to be really good value too.
