|Variety: Winter Aconites (Eranthus)|
|Flowering height: 3 ins|
|Month: January and February|
|Clare Bulb Co comment:
Soak the corms in water before planting. Aconites
can spread like wildfire, but they flower so early in the season, (sometimes before
Christmas), that they are rarely a problem. We recommend planting them
in trays of soil and then, when they show through, transplanting them to
their final position. It saves accidentally hoeing them up.
They look well with snowdrops.
Aconites are sold "in the green" in
the spring. This is a more reliable way of achieving a good result.
