The species that we offer are hardy plants for the open garden. They will almost all be happy in light, partial or dappled shade. Exceptions are noted.
Soil structure is important for long term success and they enjoy a fertile garden soil with an open porous structure that you can aid by incorporating plenty of organic matter. Lime or acid is acceptable preferably but drainage must be good. Again, organic matter worked in will create the correct open, airy, well-drained, soil structure. Provide a well drained soil and do not bother with elaborate pockets of gravel below the tuber, which simply creates a sump.
Plant with the rounded side of the tubers facing down, the small, sharp shoot pointing up and the top of the tuber 5-10cm below the soil surface.
