August to September. Dark green ivy-like leaves mottled with pale

Planting Instructions for Tubers:
tubers with flatter part uppermost and rounded part to
bottom. They are best
planted where they can be left undisturbed.
Plant with about 7cm of soil above the bulb, so that the soil
covering does not dry out during the Spring. If the soil dries out, the plant may not have sufficient moisture
to build up the bulb for flowering the following year.
