how do I grow Crown Imperial from seeds


On plant Fritillaria imperalis

Slowly, Guest, they will take a long time to reach flowering size. Sow your seed as soon as it is ripe in a pot of seed compost and leave it outside in the shade. Don't let the pot dry out. Next summer, or the one after, your seed will germinate and produce grass-like shoots. Leave them in the p[ot for a further couple of years feeding dilute tomato feed in the growing season. You can then pot the individual small bulbs into pots of their own and keep them growing on until they are large enough to plant out. Have patience, keep the compost and weeded and good luck.
