Flowering Months
When growing snakes head fritillaries, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally as this will feed the bulb for the following year. Where bulbs are naturalised in grass, avoid mowing the area until their foliage has died back.
Fritillaria meleagris thrives in the reliably moist, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting to improve less than ideal soils. Plant snakes head fritillary bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and 10cm (4") apart. Fritillary bulbs are fragile so always handle them with care. Planting them on their sides will help to avoid water collecting in their hollow crowns and prevent the bulbs from rotting. For natural looking drifts of fritillary flowers, gently cast the bulbs across the planting area and plant them where they land!
