Plant Information

Top Tips

If grown in fertile soil, plants will grow rapidly and may need staking to prevent the spires of bloom from toppling over.

Care Guide

Planting Advice:

  • Plant in fertile soil that does not dry out, ideal in woodland gardens.
  • Prefers light shade and may need staking.
  • Plants are late to emerge after winter dormancy, new leaves will appear from mid to late spring. 

When Planting:

  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
