Cultivation advice

Sowing

Sow 1-2 cm deep indoors 5-6 weeks before planting outdoors or in May in a plot facing south. The temperature of the soil should be at least 10°C. Be careful when planting, if the roots are damaged the risk of flowering increases.

Spacing

The normal distance between rows is 40-50 cm and the distance between the plants varies between 15-30 cm.

Harvest

Harvest the bulbs gradually. Banking up the soil, leaves or straw around them protects them against cold and prolongs the harvest. The bulbs can be stored for a few weeks in cool storage. The leaves can be used as herbs.

Seed

About 250 seeds/g and one portion yields at least 50 good seedlings in pre-cultivation and sows 3-5 m directly. 10 g are needed for 1000 seedlings and for 100 m about 20 g.
A portion contains about 100 seeds.
