Plant the bulbs from September till November.
Prepare the rows 22cm apart and then space the bulbs 10cm apart and 2-5cm deep along each row. Press the bulbs gently into the ground, nose facing upwards, cover them with a thin layer of soil and firm the soil around the bulb.
Keep the area weed free by regular hoeing and ensure the bulbs remain covered with soil. Keep them well watered during the growing season. Stop watering when the bulbs have swollen and expose the top of the bulbs to the light by gently pulling back the earth around them. Break off any flower stems that may appear.
When the leaves turn yellow and the foliage collapses, leave in the ground for 2 weeks before lifting. Lift gently from underneath using a fork so as not to damage any bulbs. Remove any dirt, roots and brittle stems, spread them out in a crate or on a sack to enable them to dry for 7-10 days. When dry they can be placed in nets or tied together and hung in a cool but frost free place within a dry and well ventilated environment.
These may then be stored for up to 8 months.
Grown from cultivated stock.
