  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil or loam-based potting compost such as John Innes No2
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    A bit of a challenge to grow (but well worth the effort), these cottage garden favourites produce sprays of fragrant, funnel-shaped flowers at the ends of arching, branched stems in summer. A favourite with the florsist, they look superb planted in a mix border or just en masse in patio pots.

  • Garden care: In spring, plant 8cm (3in) deep in soil in full sun. After flower buds appear, water regularly and feed with a liquid fertiliser every week. After flowering, reduce the watering until the corms are dry, then store in a frost-free place until planting for next year.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
