Fritillaria michailovskyi prefer full sun and well-drained soil which is preferably alkaline and enriched with leaf mould or compost. Plant as focal points between shrubs in the border. Plant bulbs on their sides to prevent water collecting in the hollow of the bulb. In heavy soils place grit around the bulb within the planting hole. Should the bulbs become overcrowded, lift, divide and replant in August. Fritillaria michailovskyi can be slow to establish so plant in their final position and avoid moving. They may not flower in the first year and also the season after moving.
