I have potted my bulbs on several times since purchase. So far, as long as this has been done at the end of summer, while plant is in more dormant phase and care is taken, they appear to suffer no harm.

2020 Mar 07 Welcome touch of yellow today. Good to see these guys back and looking healthy again this year.

2019 Apr 18 Planting more deeply seems to have worked. The flowers are still quite lax but they seem healthy and happier this year, growing old gracefully and fragrantly.

2018 Sep – I am attempting to plant more deeply in a larger pot to see if this makes a difference to the stem’s ability to hold weight of flower.

2017 Apr – Same again, with flower heads being too heavy for stems.

2016 Mar – Large flower heads are very fragrant. Their stems did not hold their weight very well so they flopped on to soil.
