Hi, this is not my usual forum but here goes anyway!
I have just won a Dracunculus Vulgaris bulb from eBayUK and have several questions that I can't find the answers too.... it's just over 3inches in diameter and I am planning on growing it in a large pot in my greenhouse.
1...what size pot would you recommend for a bulb this size?
2...do I plant the bulb completely under the compost or leave the 'nose' showing?
3...what kind of compost does it prefer?
4...how much water do they like?
5...do they prefer sun or shady conditions as I have found conflicting views?
6...what is the best temperature for it in summer/winter?
7...how tall can I expect it to grow as I have seen a picture of one in excess of 6ft on the internet!?
I realise I may have to evacuate the g/h when it flowers, if I can get it to flower that is, what are my chances seeing as I am not exactly in a tropical location...but it will be worth the try!
Thanks in advance.
