How to plant Ixia


In the UK, planting Ixia in pots is ideal so that they can be moved to a frost-free environment over winter. You can also plant them into pots then sink these pots into the ground which can then be lifted out in autumn. The bulbs should be planted around 10cm (4in) apart and 10cm (4in) below the soil with the tips facing upwards. Water well after planting.
