Erythronium

Very rarely offered and easily grown, thriving in inland gardens that enjoy a cold frosty winter Read more about Erythroniums

Crocus

The following Crocus vary in flowering time from July until early September. We have planted them under perennials such as Salvia nemorosa and Origanum cultivars which are cut to the ground during late autumn. All the following are easy to accomodate and have the same cultivation needs. Plant the bulbs in a sunny spot about 5cm. below soil level in well drained soil. They probably will not be happy close to the coast nor in subtropical areas.

Crocus sieberi is an easy species to grow and we have some large patches of it in the dry garden where they freely multiply and flower in the late winter and early spring. Read more about Crocus sieberi

These have giant flowers almost as big as tulips. They flower late winter and early spring and will cope with more summer watering than most other crocus although they grow happily in dry conditions. They all make good pot plants and can be brought inside when they start to flower.

Tulipa

In inland Australia wild tulips don’t need to be lifted each year provided they have a cold winter and dry summer climate. I plant them 15 cm deep in well drained soil with a handful of lime added to each square metre. If your soil isn’t acid like mine obviously you don’t need to add lime.

Iris

These are amongst the most beautiful of all winter flowering bulbs. They are easy to grow as long as a few important rules are followed. They need to be planted in a well drained spot which gets all the winter sun. The soil should be prepared well with plenty of dolomite or ground garden lime added as these Iris don’t enjoy excessively acid soils. I plant the bulbs between 12 and 15 cm deep. The soil should be kept dry during summer. Whilst these Iris are beautiful in pots the first year you receive them after that they need to be planted in the garden. None of this will seem too much trouble when you see these jewels flowering on 15cm tall stems during the depths of winter taking frost, wind rain and snow in their stride.
