Anybody out there with experience of growing Eucomis? I can only find one, old, reference on here.

I have three Eucomis in a planter and they have done well for me this year. Im wondering what to do with them next. First thought is to plant them out in a well sheltered bed near the front door, where Clianthus and Yucca fillimentosa do well.

Should i wait until all foliage has died back before removing them from the planter? Then plant straight away? They were expensive enough. So i want to make sure to get the best result.

I would wait until leaves die back and plant out in April so they don't get waterlogged or snotted by frost.

Thanks, Greengage. That was more or less what I thought. I'll just move the planter to a more sheltered place where they won't be as wet.
