My colchicum autumnale were planted last year at the base of a lilac. The corms seem to have all risen to the surface and have now got baked in the sun. I plan to lift them, divide the corms, and replant them. Can someone confirm that this is the right course of action please, I'm fairly new to all this!!

PS - do they need to be planted 3x their depth?

Thanks

Hi Sandy, summer is the time to divide and replant the corms. My only concern is that they may have been damaged in the heat of the sun. So it is really a question of taking a chance with these or buying new corms. The depth you have quoted is a good guide for all bulbs/corms. All the best, Marissa
