SCILLA GROWING

Hardy, drought-proof and bold! Scilla are very easy to grow in a full sun position, requiring little care. Long-lasting flowers in late spring to early summer. Forms a good clump in time.

Prepare your beds to a depth of 20cm, ensuring the soil is light and fluffy. Your bulbs should be planted with the 'fat end down. We suggest allowing 20cm in between each bulb, but you can stretch it out for a less full display. Cover the bulbs with approximately 4cm of soil. If growing your bulbs in a pot, select a high-quality potting mix, specifically suited to bulb growing. Keep the pot in a sunny position, and remember it needs watering. Potted bulbs should not have a saucer placed under the pot.

Your bulbs should be fed as they come into bloom. A quick-release fertiliser is needed to ensure the food is available for their short feeding season. Remember to ALWAYS allow the foliage to fully die down on the bulb - this helps grow and feed next years flowers.
