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 someone help me please?




They need to be planted in July/August at a depth of 3". You don't need to dead-head them - let the flowers die back. The leaves will follow and you need to let them flourish and then die back too, to nourish the bulbs. Dry them off or stop watering them, and keep them dry until planting time comes.
