Plant bulbs as soon as possible, once you have received your shipment. Refer to the variety product page under the Growing Information tab for individual planting tips per bulb type. If you cannot plant right away, remove the bulbs from plastic bags and put them on trays with damp peat moss or sawdust in a cool, well-ventilated place until you have a chance to plant them. Do not let the bulbs freeze. Plant outdoors once the conditions are right for your hardiness zone.
Plant in full sun in well-drained soil after last spring frost. Pot up indoors 6 weeks before last frost date for earlier bloom. Soak the tubers in water for 3 hours before planting. Plant clawside down, covering them with 1"-2" of soil. Give them a thorough initial watering and wait until shoots appear to begin regular watering when soil surface appears dry.
Fertilize weekly as soon as foliage appears. Dig up after foliage withers and store in dry peat moss or vermiculite over winter.
