Sow and Plant
Best grown from cloves, planted direct into holes, pointed end up in late autumn or late winter.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalized calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Many varieties require a cooler period with temperatures under 10 degrees celcius for the first one or two months.
Dig up bulbs in summer when leaves start to turn yellow. Clean them and let them dry out over a few days before storing.
Watch for winter weeds. Plants left in the ground too long often have loose bulbs that do not store well.
