  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 4/5

    This is a wonderful plant that produces cheerful, daisy-like flowers in shades of blue and purple in March and April. These are perfect plants for naturalising in a mixed border around the base of deciduous shrubs, or adding spring colour to the edge of a woodland garden. For maximum impact, plant in bold drifts in September or October, and if happy, they should spread quite quickly.

  • Garden care: Soak the tubers overnight in cool water and plant them (it doesn't matter which way up) 5cm deep and 15cm apart in well-drained, humus-rich soil. Ideally you should choose a spot where they can be left undisturbed so they can naturalise and spread.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

          Lovely blue colour. Delicate leaves. Although a woodland plant, the flowers close when not in direct sun so put them somewhere that has sun for at least a part of the day. Not sure how well they naturalise though as the ones I bought last year didn't come back very strongly.

              Plant spring bulbs

              Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
