Ensure that you plant at the depth specified above. If planted too deep the bulb may rot and the shoot will emerge late, while if it's too shallow it will emerge unevenly and produce spindly growth.
Once the shoot emerges, watering thoroughly and regularly will help encourage growth.
Fertiliser isn't necessary, but will help with blooms. Simply apply slow release fertiliser when planting in autumn, or alternatively apply liquid fertiliser when the growing season starts in early spring.
