You need a good sieve, and a load of compost or farm yard manure. Sieve out all the nasty bits. Fork in the compost to a depth of 15cm or 6 inches,and then plant into it.

You won't need a gym membership this year.

The plants online  probably wont be delivered until the winter, when they will deliver a crown or root. Use this time to get the soil ready with lots of compost or farm yard Manure.

If they didn't flower last year, and they don't this, then I would throw them away and get new next year.

I only keep the biggest corms from year to year.
