Planting+
As soon as possible after receiving the Fritillaria Imperialis bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the large bulbs about 15 to 25 cm deep which is about three times as deep as the bulb. For example a bulb of 5 cm should be planted in a 15 cm deep hole. The planting distance is about 30 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. Plant the Fritillaria imperialis bulbs one by one with a trowel or a special bulb planter. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs in it.
Care+
The Fritillaria imperialis flowers are at their best in the first year. That’s why we recommend each year adding new and extra bulbs to make your borders and pots even more colourful. Fritillaria imperialis are moisture-loving plants by nature and grow best in fertile, well-drained soil in an area in full sun. Even when the foliage looks untidy it is best left to die down naturally and this will direct the energy back into the bulbs for the following year. Water more frequently during dry periods. Protect the bulbs from severe frost by covering the ground with a layer of leaves or straw.
