I have grown the same...Priscilla, £1 for 15 corms from Lidl.
two bags full have given me loads of cut flowers for the house.
At that price, its no hardship to buy a couple of dozen each year. In free draining soil, if they are planted deep, they will survive most winters and rebloom next year.
I grow them in lines in the veg patch, taking the space when the broad beans come out.
