3 Corms (KB3506)

Plant Crocosmia corms should at a depth of 10cm (4”) in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun or part shade.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. The growth points of most bare root perennials should be set about an inch below the soil surface. New growth will appear in spring.

Crocosmia plants are easy to grow and require minimal attention. Cut back faded crocosmia flowers and foliage in autumn before applying a mulch of bark chips or well rotted compost. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of crocosmia bulbs in autumn.
