When growing fritillaries, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally as this will feed the bulb for the following year. During their dormant period the soil should be kept almost dry to prevent the bulbs from rotting. Begin watering sparingly as the bulbs start back into active growth.
Fritillaria persica are some of the toughest most resilient fritillaries, thriving in fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Plant them at a depth of 12cm (5") and 25cm (10") 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.
