Plant details

Marco Polo' has beautiful white flowers, lightly flecked with pink. It is a small variety, growing to only 30cm (1ft) tall and is ideal for growing in pots on the patio or at the front of a border. The bulbs are best planted in autumn while they are still plump. They should go in 2-3 times their own depth and at the equivalent spacing between bulbs. In the border, they enjoy well-drained soil in full sun, with shade at the base. Alternatively they can be planted in deep containers, using loam-based compost, such as John Innes No2.
