An old variety that has stood the test of time and is still deservedly popular. Brilliant for adding early colour (although February may be a little bit of a push unless we have a very mild winter!), these small, cheery flowers should be planted in big clumps for maximum impact. They also do really well in pots and window boxes.
SITE: full sun/partial shade
FLOWERING MONTHS: February/March
BULB SIZE: 10/12
Wearing gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally.
