With the top of the bulb 2cm below the surface of a good quality, well draining soil or potting mix between the months of June and October.
Somewhere lightly shaded and warm is perfect for me to flourish either in a pot or in the ground.
Once only after planting, then not again until the first green shoots begin to appear which is usually from September / October.
Balanced, slow release.
Appear during the warmer Summer months and are stunning left on the plant, or as a cut flower used in arrangements.
Don’t be tempted to pull off dead foliage at the start of winter as this may cause damage to the rhizome.
