Hi, Owdboggy,Iam not sure if for raised garden wall or maybe in containers outside

Ok. If you are not wanting to force them for early flowering then all they need is good well drained garden soil in full sun. Plant them with about twice the length of the bulb of soil above the top of the bulb. Might be worth putting a little grit or sharp sand for the bulb to sit on if your soil is not well drained. Plant them any time from now on until end of October.
