How to plant

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

Plant bulbs in early au­tumn, about 3-4in (8-10cm) deep.

Use a loam-based com­post in pots, with added grit for drainage (two parts com­post to one part grit).

In bor­ders, choose a spot with well-drain­ing soil, in full sun or par­tial shade.

If over­crowded, lift and di­vide the clumps once the flow­ers have gone over.

Don’t plant in rich soil or over­feed or you will end up with more leaf than flower.
