Care Information

  • Plant when danger of frost has passed and the ground has warmed.
  • Can be planted in the ground, pots, containers or hanging baskets.
  • Alternatively start them off in a greenhouse.
  • Plant hollow side uppermost, 5cm/2” deep, in well drained soil.
  • Water regularly during dry periods avoiding wetting the foliage.
  • Dead head regularly, to encourage new flowering.
  • Reduce the watering when the leaves begin to yellow, this encourages dormancy.
