Care Instructions

How to care for Fritillaria Persica 'Ivory Bells' 

  • Fritillaria Persica can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
  • If planting in borders in the garden, the soil must be well drained and, preferably, sandy.
  • If planting in pots, make sure the Fritiallaria Persica 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 Fritiallaria Persica has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally.
  • Fritiallaria Persica 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
  • In early spring, you can add slug deterrents around new growth. 
  • Prevent the Scarlet Lily beetle from ruining your Fritillarias by using our Lily Beetle Prevention spray.
