    Growing Summer Hyacinth

    In mild areas, you will be able to plant your Galtonia bulbs directly outside between late March and May. In cooler areas, you might need to start them off in pots in a cool greenhouse ready to transplant into your garden later in the season.

    Plant Galtonia bulbs in borders or containers in a sheltered spot with full sun, around 30-40cm apart and water them in well. They will do best in fertile, well-drained soil, but keep them hydrated while in growth – it is important not to let the soil dry out.

    In colder areas either lift and overwinter in a container in a cool dry site or protect with a deep mulch.

    Summer Hyacinth can be propagated by seed. Sow them in pots in a cold frame when ripe or you can remove offsets in early Spring.

    Generally pest and disease resistant.
