  • Fritillaria Assyriaca/Uva Vulpis should be planted in the Autumn for Spring flowering.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained, sandy soil, if necessary add sand, grit or gravel to be improve the condition of the area for planting.
  • Arrange the bulbs in clusters.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 1-2" apart.
  • If planting in pots, use  good-quality, multi-purpose compost, preferably adding sand to the planting hole to prevent the bulbs from rotting.
  • Plant the bulbs 2-3" of soil above them.
  • It is best to plant the Uva Vulpis bulb on its side - this prevents water collecting at the top of the bulb and causing it to rot.

  • Arrange the bulbs in clusters.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 1-2" apart.

  • Plant the bulbs 2-3" of soil above them.
  • It is best to plant the Uva Vulpis bulb on its side - this prevents water collecting at the top of the bulb and causing it to rot.

 

Care Instructions

  • If planting in borders in the garden, the soil must be well drained and, preferably, sandy.
  • If planting in pots, make sure the Fritillaria Assyriaca/Uva Vulpis are kept moist but do not get waterlogged.
  • If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.
  • When the Fritillaria Assyriaca/Uva Vulpis has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally.
  • Fritillaria Assyriaca/Uva Vulpis bulbs will multiply during the first or second year of planting. Ideally, the best time to lift and check your bulbs for dividing is during the months of August and September. Once, you have divided your bulbs, they will all need replanting.
  • Keep a look out for the Scarlet Lily Beetle, this will ruin your Fritillaria foliage. Prevent them from doing so by using our Lily Beetle Prevention spray.
