I've just ordered some mixed crocosmia bulbs, but I've done that several times before and nothing came up. They will be delivered by the end of April.
Would it be feasible to plant them in pots just so that I can make sure to water them and nurse them along? If I did, should I use compost or just garden soil?
I've planted crocosmia bulbs before, planted an actual growing plant, planted bulbs from my sister's garden (which grew like mad for her) and never had any luck with any of my efforts.
