PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Tigridia pavonia
Tiger Flower
Type/Hardiness Bulbous perennial, Tender
Flowering period July-August
Height 60cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Well-drained, light, moist
Sowing time/depth Spring, 0.1in/3mm
This exotic bulb in shades of red, yellow, white and cream is happiest in full sun in moist, well drained soil (add grit to the planting hole if soil is heavy). Tigridia can endure the cold, but for complete safety, in all but the mildest areas it is advisable to lift mature bulbs in autumn and store, preferably in peat or vermiculite, in a dry, frost-free place.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow seed in moist, well-drained compost in spring, only 1/16in deep (it is considered that light aids germination), 1in/2cm apart, in a warm greenhouse or propagator, potting on into modules or small pots when 2-3in/5-8cm high and harden off before moving them to a cold frame, where they should remain until May of the following year when they can then be planted out. They may flower the first year if sown early enough, but certainly in the second.
