Galtonia (Summer Hyacinth)

Summer Hyacinth from S Africa. In nature these usually grow in wet slopes at high altitudes. In cultivation they should be grown in a rather sandy soil to protect the bulbs from excessive moisture.
Sow at a minimum of some 12°C in late spring to early summer in any well drained soil. Keep soil rather dry until first leaves appear. Best grown frost free in pots for two years. Transplant bulbs in autumn. Plant rather deep to protect from freezing. Very free flowering, even in Central Europe.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7 unless otherwise specified.
20 seeds per package.
