Hi Isobel

You’re very welcome. You need to plant them all now (during the months or Sept – Nov). You can plant them all 6-8cm below the soil surface. You can find further instructions on how to plant and care for your bulbs on the product pages on our website.

Planting my Fritillaria rubra.

This question was asked by
Mrs Josephine Hickmam

I have quite a large pot to plant my fritillaria in and was wondering if I can plant other things in while waiting for it to grow. Things like cyclamen,heather, Pansy\’s snowdrops and anemones.

Yes you can – you can layer the planting like a lasagne. Remember to plant your Fritillaria on their side so the hole doesn’t get waterlogged.

Tulip Bulbs

When is the best time to plant tulips?

We advise planting tulip bulbs in the Autumn, preferably in October/November, after the firsts frosts as this will wipe out any viral and fungal diseases that may be in the soil and which may infect the bulbs. Planting later in the year means there is less risk of disease and this is when the tulip bulbs start putting their roots down. More information on how to plant tulips can be found here:

Please can you tell me if the seed heads on my plants can be used to grow new plants, if so when should I try to use them.
Thankyou

Yes, you can do this… let the seed head form properly and allow them to dry out and then you can harvest the seed later but doing this will affect the bulb for the following year.
