Compost will aid in drainage and improve the nutrient content of the soil. Dig a 6-inch-deep hole for each corm. Space the holes 12 to 15 inches apart in all directions. Set each Corm at a 3" depth, with its flat side on the bottom and fill in the hole with soil. Water the bed lightly so the soil is moist, but not saturated.
