I grow this plant (from seed collected by Wayne Roderick a few years
ago) in a sand bed in the garden here in eastern England.  The bed has
a roughly seven inch layer of sand with a layer of gritty compost
below.  The bulbs are planted in the sand, just above the compost
level.  They are doing better here than in a raised bed of standard
free draining compost and better than the few I keep in a pot.  It is
in full flower now, dwarfing the commercial clone 'Queen Fabiola.'
