Specialist bulb merchants, such as Jacques Amand, list it in their catalogues. Good Garden Centres, eg Notcutts or Hilliers, may be able to get it for you as well

WOW - they are beautiful Andrew!

I bought some Colchicum bulbs and I put each of them in individual pots because I cannot decide where to put them yet I don't know how deep they have to be and I don't know if to deadhead the flowers or not, can you tell me what you do with them please?

I plant about four inches deep. I don't bother to deadhead, just let all the top growth die off over winter. The leaves appear in spring and then die off - they can look pretty grim at this time so I remove them when they're about 50%rotten
