Growing Calendar for Eucomis Sparkling Rosy - Flower Bulbs x2
Delivery: Early March to Late May
This distinctive spring-planting bulb flower grows to make your pots and borders stand out from the crowd in the summer. Its architectural leaf and stem design gives a tropical air giving you that sense of escape you may be hankering after. Drama and escape to the tropics in one!
We give you 2 plump bulbs which you can plant in 2 pots, 1 in each pot in spring. Alternatively grow these bulbs in flower beds spacing the bulbs 1ft (30cm) apart so the leaves have space to develop into handsome tropical-looking spikes as they grow Bury the bulbs in soil about 3in (8cm) deep.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
How your plants arrive
Your 2 plants arrive to you as plump bulbs which, once planted in spring, develop lovely leaves and one or two flower spikes that look-like pineapples growing on a bush.
The bulbs arrive in a plastic bag with ventilation holes so that the bulbs get plenty of air. This ensures the bulbs are kept healthy and prevents the bulbs from rotting, which can affect the health of the plant when it’s growing.
Check your 2 bulbs are in the mesh bag, and that the bulbs are firm, plump and free of mould or bruises.
Can’t plant straight away?
All you need to do is make sure the bulbs are kept in their ventilated bags and kept in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
