Planting+
As soon as possible after receiving the Oxalis Versicolor bulbs they can be planted in the garden or in a patio pot or window-box. Both the planting depth and the planting distance of this garden sorrel are approximately 3 cm. Make small holes, loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards, although they will grow from any position. Plant the bulbs of Oxalis Versicolor one by one with a small trowel. For larger areas, make a larger planting hole to accommodate several bulbs. Refill the planting hole with soil and water immediately. After about 6 weeks you should begin to see foliage forming, with the flowers following 2 weeks later. This garden sorrel grows best in fertile, well-drained soil in a spot in full sun or partial shade.
Care+
The small bulbs of Oxalis Versicolor can remain in the same spot for years. Keep the soil rather dry in the early summer until the plant starts growing, it can then be watered more regularly. For a healthy growth, during the flowering period we recommend adding a fertilizer regularly when watering. This will ensure a rich flowering for the following year. After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow. Leaving the foliage on the plant until then, allows them to take in the sunlight which provides nourishment for the following years flowering. The little bulbs of Oxalis Versicolor are frost-sensitive. That’s why they need protecting during the winter with a layer of straw or fallen leaves. They cannot tolerate soil that is too wet especially in winter.
