Add a touch of colour to your autumn garden

If you’re dreaming of a natural-looking garden with a touch of colour this autumn / winter, it’s all about the colchicums. Colchicums are perfect for naturalising and will flower during autumn. So, you can look forward to large, double white blooms to lighten up your garden. In fact, they can be grown indoors without soil if you fancy enjoying them inside too.

  • Perfect for naturalising
  • Flowers during autumn
  • With white, double blooms

A lovely way to achieve some bright white blooms when the colours of summer are dormant, we love colchicums. One bulb can produce up to eight of those double blooms, and their dainty pink shade adds a magical touch to your garden.

If you prefer to enjoy them indoors, grow your colchicum bulbs in a shallow container indoors – you won’t even need any soil! Flowers September – November. Height up to 30cm. Waterlily - Big double white blooms - as many as 8 per bulb! Bulb size 14cm+.

Choose a sheltered position in full sun or partial shade. Colchicums require a moist, well drained soil which is rich in organic matter. On heavy clay soils incorporate well rotted garden compost into the soil prior to planting. Plant the corms 8cm deep and 10-15cm apart. Flowers appear September to November followed by the leaves which are produced in spring. If they are grown in a shallow tray indoors, plant them in the garden as soon as the flowers start to fade.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to pollinators. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
