– Avoid planting directly in the frozen soil. Optimal planting time in the UK is September to December, allowing plants to establish before the warm spring and hot summer.
– Container planting is possible throughout the year; use containers that are large and deep enough to prevent roots from freezing the in the winter, and ensure there are drainage holes in the bottom of the container.
– Water well after planting. Avoid waterlogged conditions in winter.
– Remove seed pods before they open to avoid slowing up plant growth in spring and summer. Clear old/brown leaves in spring and summer to make space for fresh growth.
– Feeding is not required during the first flowering season. Use balanced organic fertilisers to feed older plants in February/March and repeat in July/August.
