    Perennial bulbs. Sun or part shade. In my experience very sensitive to slugs and snails.

    I'm going to with mine. Also I'd advise pinching them out as they grow as I haven't and they have turned out quite leggy.

    I just couldnt get them to grow well, they flowered, went all yellow and soggy then died. I have left a couple in, the rest in the bin.
