Ixia: (Zones 1,2,3,4) - Also see general bulb growing instructions<
Ixia are relatively easy to grow, but require a bit of warmth and sun. Plant 5cm deep and 5-10cm apart. They like some complete fertiliser mixed with the soil and a top dress before flowering. They don't need much water, it only becomes necessary prior to flowering. They will naturalise and form clumps that can be separated after a few years.
