When to plant: Plant crocosmia corms in spring, after the danger of frost has passed. They can be slow to sprout, especially if temperatures are cool. To jumpstart growth, wait until soil and air temperatures warm up.
How to plant: In garden beds, plant crocosmia corms 2 to 3 inches deep and 8 to 10 inches apart, with the pointed end facing up. Mass the corms together in groups of 10 or more for the best effect.
Planting in containers: If growing in containers, plant to the same depth in any well-drained good-quality potting mix in a pot with adequate drainage holes.
Soil: Crocosmia grows best in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soil. Avoid planting in heavy clays or soggy sites.
