Preliminary report on tissue culture of corms
of Crocus sativus.
Pot up freesia corms
in the greenhouse for winter flowers and scent.
After preparation of farm Bunches of two or tree corms
are planted 10-15 cm apart and the distance between the rows is about 25 cm.
If you don't fancy lifting gladioli corms
every year, try the Gladiolus communis subsp.
The collection includes three superb varieties (15 corms
of each) for just PS13.
can be planted in their original pot with fresh compost, kept cool, but frost free.
We're also giving away a painters' pallet of colour with 80 easy to grow Anemone De Caen corms
Each year a new corm
is made on top of the chain of old corms
A method that often works, however, is to make the corms
inedible by tainting them with paraffin.
I should be I soaked for 24 hours before planting 6cm deep and 3cm apart in groups of 10-20 corms
It is because these plants, together with those that grow from corms
, tubers, tuberous roots and bulbs, contain a number of sterling garden plants that, too often, are neglected.
should be planted 5cm (2in) deep between July and September in sun or partial shade in humus - rich, rather gritty welldrained soil with added leafmould.
