Eucharis are tender perennials and must be kept away from frost or prolonged cold conditions. They require mild to warm conditions to sprout and are best started off in a heated greenhouse or indoors in the spring.
— Plant into pots between March and May and grow them on indoors or in a warm greenhouse. They can be grown indoors throughout the season or transplanted outside from May onwards. Alternatively, you can plant them straight outside in May.
— Plant the with the neck of the bulb exposed.
— Space the bulbs around 10-15cm apart from each other.
— When planting outdoors, choose a sheltered position in full sun with free-draining soil.
— If planting in patio containers, use a free-draining compost such as multipurpose.
— Water-in after planting and continue to water regularly when in growth. Allow the soil to become almost dry between watering. Don’t allow dormant bulbs to sit in wet and cold soil.
— Remove the flower stems after flowering, the leaves can remain intact until they die back. Move containers with Eucharis into a frost-free location in autumn Bulbs planted in borders should be lifted and stored in a frost-free place until the following spring.
