Planting Instructions
Fritillaria bulbs should be planted 8" (20cm) deep in rich soil, which has had fertiliser added. As they grow so fast and need to rapidly replenish that effort, they would benefit from an annual liquid feed of potash rich fertiliser (low in nitrogen) when in growth, a proprietary brand for tomato plants would be suitable. The bulbs should not be disturbed unless they flower poorly, when they should again be replanted 8" (20cm) deep. They need a dry position in the summer.
