What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
Fritillaria imperialis (Crown Imperial)
Elegant drooping bells crested with glossy green foliage can grow to over 1.25m (4ft). Plant on arrival 15cm (6') deep and 25cm (10') apart in fairly good well drained soil in a sunny open position. To encourage flowering in the following years apply a dressing of sulphate or potash in the Spring and Autumn. Flowers April.
