A lovely 'three-colour' mix of these unusual, exotic bulbs. Fragrant spikes of flowers rise above green, linear foliage making a fabulous focal point in patio containers. The waxy blooms of Polianthes tuberosa also make a charming cut flower. Polianthes tuberosa requires a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F). It is best grown in a container that can be moved to a warm, frost free position in winter, or kept as a conservatory plant. In very mild areas it may be grown in sheltered, sunny borders.

22 polianthes bulbs - 10 white, 6 yellow and 6 pink (KA9410)

Polianthes tuberosa requires a minimum temperature of 15°C (59°F). Plant tubers in containers at a depth of 10cm (4") and grow them on until large enough to move outdoors when all risk of frost has passed. When growing tuberose in extremely mild areas, plant directly into moist, fertile, well drained soil in sheltered sunny borders.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Move containers of tuberose plants to a cool, frost-free position before the first frosts. Lift tubers from borders and store them in sand or peat in frost free conditions until ready to replant the following spring.
