  • Outdoor Growing Instructions
  • Making the compost: Place the compost pellets in a suitable mixing container and add 1.4ltr of lukewarm water. Allow to stand and expand for 30-60 minutes, drain off any excess water and mix compost well. You may have more compost than you require and more water could be required if the compost mix is looking dry.

  • How to plant: Plant from February onwards. Fill 80% of the planter with the compost and place the bulbs with their noses upright and cover with more compost. Water sparingly so compost is moist. Be careful not to overwater. Place outdoors in a sunny position and protect from frost. Remove faded flowers regularly. Keep the compost moist at all times.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
