Soil Type (this field contains PH): Soil/Location: Plant your Crocosmia bulbs in full sun to part shade in average to loamy, well-drained soil. The soil should be well drained and can be somewhat moist but never wet. Add compost or peat humus to enrich the soil and help with drainage if needed. As with most perennials, remember to keep the soil light and airy, so cover them with loose soil and don't pack it in after planting.
Moisture: Water and fertilize regularly after planting and during growth.
Planting Instructions: 1. Dig a hole 4-5" deep.
2. Place bulb in hole pointed side up.
3. Cover with soil and water thoroughly.
Plant the bulbs with the thin roots pointed down about 4 to 5" below the soil. The soil below the bulbs should also be well-draining, especially in the winter, so sometimes you will need to dig deeper and then backfill lightly to make sure the bulbs aren't sitting on bad soil. In warmer zones, they don't need to be quite that deep but this helps with winter protection in the north.
