Additional tips
For a longer harvest period, care should be taken not to hurt the heart when harvesting. Winter hedge bulb generally prefers cooler, humid climates. In order to quickly obtain a fine, crumbly and well-drained soil, an additional incorporation of biochar and primeval rock flour is recommended.

Type of propagation
Spread occurs via seeds.

Care Plants
Due to the initially slow growth of the plants, we recommend weeding the surrounding herbs regularly. M It animal manure prepared beds and planting in mixed culture, replaces additional fertilization. With a perennial cultivation from the 2nd Year, we recommend annually in spring a fertilizer with plant manure to promote growth.
