Soil Type

Fertile, well drained soil

Camassia Esculanta bulbs should be planted between 5 and 8 cm deep in fertile, well drained, humus rich soil.
Once planted the bulbs can be left undisturbed to naturalise. Take care to ensure that there is good drainage in the soil and avoid the area becoming water-logged. In areas of extreme cold in winter, it is always a good idea to apply some mulch as protection.
