good compost,some sand,on a cool window sill,feed when flowering,never over water,after flooriweringlowering (flowering,cant erase spelling on this site for some reason),frugel watering.As soon as flowers die,nip off,and when all dead,cut stem tto an inch .If babies turn up,separate when they have grown a little,and of course,bulbs stand proud on the soil,I.e half out.

I think its great to keep them in the guttering and along a fence if you have limited space.I grow lettuce in window boxes attatched to a fence,a struggle for the snails and easy to monitor and pick off the leaves you need them,lasted me all summer with regular sowings.

Are 6 trumpets on single head unusual?
