Irealing with a bulb dusl beforehand. You can either plant in holes trenches, in groups, making sure there is good drainage by using sand or fine gravel below the bulb.

Placa in a dry. well-aired place in a tern- peralurc of around 85 degrees for about a week. When dry, the old corms will come away eas- ily from Ihe new ones. Dust again and store in a cool tem- perature of 40 to 45 degrees in paper bags with holes to allow for air circulation, or use what- ever oilier method you like.
