    This kit comes complete with a decorative wirework outer basket, a zinc planter, a selection of spring-flowering bulbs (see below), potting compost and clear instructions on how to put them all together to create a beautiful display for your home.

    Each planter contains the following bulbs:
    5 x Chionodoxa 'Pink Giant'
    5 x Iris Reticulata 'Clairette'
    5 x Crocus (white)

    Indoor growing intructions: Plant from August onwards, by emptying two thirds of the compost into the planter. Then place the bulbs on top (pointy side uppermost) and cover them with the remaining compost, firming it down gently. Water sparingly so the compost is just moist, but be careful not to overwater. Place the planter in a bright position and try to maintain temperatures around 18-20C. Once in flower, move the planter to a cool, bright room to help prolong the display. Turn the basket occasionally as the flowers will grow towards the light, and keep the compost moist but not waterlogged at all times. When the flowers have finished blooming, the bulbs can be planted outside in the garden.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
