Very easy to grow
Sow seed 1.5cm deep in rows 15-20cm apart. Thin seedlings to 5-10cm apart. Plant sets at the same spacing just beneath the soil surface with the tip showing.
Water plants in dry weather, stopping once the bulbs have swollen. Break-off any flower stems that appear.
Dig up bulbs two weeks after leaves turn yellow and topple over, loosening with a hand fork. Leave bulbs to dry in sun before storing.
