How to plant Ixia

Ixia is a tender bulb and must be protected from frost.

— Plant your Ixia bulbs in spring and grow on in bright, frost-free conditions. Then, transplant into the garden in May.

— Alternatively, plant straight outside after risk of frost has passed.

— Grow in borders or containers in a sunny, sheltered spot.

— Plant the bulbs 10-15cm deep.

— Space the bulbs about 10-15cm apart.

— Plant the bulbs with the pointed side facing upwards.

— Water-in after planting and keep hydrated during the summer.
