Choose a site with full sun and adequate drainage, and protected from strong winds which could knock down the tall flower spikes. Use a garden fork or tiller to work the planting bed to a depth of 12 to 15 inches. Mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost to assure proper drainage. Use a bulb planter to make a hole about 5-6 inches deep. Add fertilizer to the bottom of the hole and scratch it into the surface of the soil. Set the corm in the hole with the pointed end up. Fill in soil to cover and press down firmly. Space 4 to 6 inches apart, then water thoroughly. If you are planting tall varieties, install stakes at planting time, taking care not to damage corms. Stagger plantings to extend the blooming season. To retain moisture and help control weeds, apply a 2- to 4-inch layer of mulch around the plants.
