How to plant Belamcanda

Belamcanda are fully hardy, tolerating temperatures down to -20C. They can be planted directly outside in the spring and won’t require and winter protection in most areas.

— Plant directly into a clear, well-dug space in a border between March and May. Alternatively, you can pot them into temporary pots and grow them on outdoors to allow them to establish some initial growth without competition, then transplant later in the season.

— Belamcanda prefer heavy soils and can also be grown successfully in clay soil.

— Plant the bulbs around 10-15cm deep in borders, pots or patio containers.

— Space the bulbs around 10-15cm apart in borders, or closer together (5-8cm) in pots.

— Choose a position in full sun, partial or dappled shade.

— If planting in patio containers, you can use multipurpose or soil-based compost.

— Water-in after planting and continue to water regularly when in growth in the first year.

— Remove the flower stems after flowering and cut back foliage to ground level in autumn.
