Lamp-Post Man's bulbs.
Some weeks ago, my neighbour, "Lamp-Post Man" gave me an old bucket full of muddy bulbs. I planted these in two pots, and have since had the most marvellous display of purple autumn crocus. Now I'm not sure what to do with them after flowering.
Can they stay in the pots or should I take them out and dry them?
If they do remain in the pots should I keep the compost moist or can I let it dry out till the spring?
So many questions. Lamp-Post Man says the bulbs produce leaves in the spring, which then look ugly as they die off. Any more info. very welcome please. Thanks.
I realise others have asked questions about Colchium but I'm still not sure exactly when to water the pots and when they can be dry. If they stay in damp compost, will they rot?
