    Never grown them myself so no idea how easy they are.  If you can provide the right conditions and are careful with them they ought to survive.

    They need good drainage and a dryish spot and according to this article http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3315977/How-to-grow-Fascicularia-bicolor.html  they ought to survive most winters with those conditions.

    Christopher Lloyd used to grow them almost entirely in grit and they were hardy for him, but that was in the south. I love them and have often thought I might try them. I would probably try in a pot though.

    I wanted your soft verges 
    But you gave me the hard shoulder..

  • yes thanks for your help,i think i might try one in a largish pot
