These gems will grow anywhere and will naturalise freely. Extremely versatile, they are superb for large bedding schemes, pockets in the border, woodlands, rockeries or simply planted in pots or containers.[Photo: Muscari Grape Ice - 7230]
Muscari prefer a sunny aspect and will thrive in any type of soil with reasonable drainage so plant 8cm (3") deep and 7cm (3") apart.

The bulbs naturalise if they are left undisturbed and after they have finished flowering they can be lifted and split to avoid clumps getting congestion.
