How to take care of Fritillaria meleagris x 20

These are spring - summer flowering perennials, grown for their bell shaped flowers. Drainage is important, plant the bulb on its side so that the hollow crown does not hold water and surround it with coarse sand to improve drainage. The shorter species are best grown in clumps in borders; groups of 5-7 bulbs are most effective. Place them in an open sunny position and do not let them dry out. They work better in a stony soil. Stake them for support during the flowering period and fertilise with organic fertiliser early March. After flowering let the foliage die back naturally and cut back stems to ground level and mark the spot with a cane to avoid damaging the bulb during the dormant season. Best left undisturbed. Give a mulch cover in winter.

Bulb rot is a significant problem in poorly drained soils. Plants are susceptible to leaf spot, rust and mosaic virus. Slugs and snails may damage foliage.
