— Plant your Eremurus tubers directly outside from mid to late autumn.
— Choose a sunny spot in a sheltered border with free-draining soil.
— Soak the roots in water for 2-3 hours prior to planting.
— Dig a hole 15-20cm deep for the whole tuber with a peak of light soil, grit, sand or gravel in the centre so that the crown is shallower than the tubers.
— Plant with the crown just below the soil surface with any visible shoots or 'eyes' facing upwards, and the roots angled downwards.
— Space the plants around 15-20cm apart.
— Cover back over with soil and water-in.
— Leave dormant over winter without any additional watering. Foliage will start to emerge the following spring.
