Useful Tip:

When you receive your bulb-like tuber, plant straight away in a pot filled with a specially-formulated bulb compost like Dalefoot Wool Compost for Bulbs. If you plan to plant in a bed, just add a spadeful or two per square metre of the Wool Compost into the top layer of the existing soil.

If you can’t plant the tuber straight away leave it somewhere cool, dark and airy like an unheated shed. Look to planting your bulb within five to seven days.
