Plant details

Bridal Crown' is ideal for forcing to have early flowers indoors. It produces several sweetly scented, double, white flowers that are blushed with orange in their centres. To grow indoors, plant bulbs 5cm (2in) deep in early autumn and plunge in a cold frame outdoors until roots appear. Bring into the greenhouse and gradually increase the temperature. Water freely and feed with weak high potash fertiliser once a week. Bring into the house once flower buds appear. The bulbs are best discarded after flowering. Alternatively it can be grown outdoors in the normal way planting the bulbs twice their own depth in autumn.
