Growing directions

Plant in autumn. Put the corms into a dry paper bag and chill them in the fridge for 6 weeks. After this, pre-soak the corms in room temp water for 2 hours, using a slow running hose so that oxygenated water runs past your corms. Prepare the bed with approx. 7 cm of compost and a balanced fertiliser mixed together. If you want flowers earlier, then pre-sprout the corms by filling a tray half full with moist potting mix, put the corms on top of this and cover with more potting mix. Keep moist but not soggy at 4-10 deg C for 10-14 days. Dig them up carefully and check if their rootlets have developed to approx. 1 cm long. When this happens plant corms 15cm apart out into the bed and approx. 6cm deep with the rootlets facing down.
