How to Grow Babiana
If you love flowering bulbs but have a tricky area to plant in, then you may like to consider growing Babianas (Babiana stricta). These hardy Spring flowering bulbs produce violet-blue or mauve, freesia like flowers that appear on spikes up to 20cm. Great for the beginner bulb grower, as they are hardy and can tolerate periods of neglect while still providing a stunning spring flowering display.
