Planting and growing instructions: Eucomis Playa Blanca Bulbs from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

How to plant Eucomis

  • Find a location in full sun/partial shade.
  • Eucomis can be grown in most soil types, please ensure it is well-drained.
  • Water freely when in flower. 

How to plant Eucomis in pots

  • We recommend planting in a loam-based compost like John Innes No.3 with added grit.
  • Mix 2/3 compost to 1/3 horticultural grit. 
  • Plant in a wide, shallow pan container.
  • Plant bulbs so the tip is just below the surface.
  • Allow 7-15cm (3-6") apart.

How to plant Eucomis in the garden

  • Plant each bulb 10-15cm (4-6") deep to protect from frost damage and 15cm (6") apart.

How to care for Eucomis

  • Eucomis may need protecting over winter. Apply a mulch to protect from hard frosts. Cover with 10cm thick of bark or leaf mould. 
  • Containers can be kept in a frost-free place over winter, bring them into shelter from October. Allow the compost to dry out for the bulbs to become dormant. 
  • If you wish to lift them, dry the bulbs off and store them in a frost-free place such a shed or greenhouse. 
  • In the spring, give your pots a top dress with a general fertiliser like Growmore.

This question was asked by

Do I cut back stems and leaves? Or leave to die back normally like Daffodils? Thank you

After flowering- It is important with all bulbs to allow the leaves to die back naturally after flowering. Winter protection- Eucomis are not fully hardy and the bulbs need to be protected from frost. Apply a mulch to protect from hard frosts. Cover with 10cm thick of bark or leaf mould.
Containers can be kept in a frost-free place over winter, bring them into shelter from October. Allow the compost to dry out for the bulbs to become dormant.
If you wish to lift them, dry the bulbs off and store them in a frost-free place such a shed or greenhouse.
