What should I be doing in the Garden this month?
More Summer Flowering Bulbs Sprekelia Sprekelia formosissima (Jacobean Lily)
Only in mild districts can this very beautiful plant be overwintered outdoors but it needs a warm sheltered place such as beneath a South wall. Set the bulbs just below ground level and apply a protective layer in Winter. Grown in pots, cover the bulb up to two-thirds and keep in a cool greenhouse. Flowers July to August.
