Planting Guide

Plant:  September-November,  with the tip of the crown just below the surface; about 8 cm of compost on top.  Flowers June- July.    Height 220 cm.

Hardy Perennial.   Needs full sun with well-drained soil,  if soil is heavy mix in some sharp sand.  Plant in a sheltered site to protect from wind, with the protruding centre piece facing upwards.   Feed with a slow release fertilizer. If winter is severely cold; cover with a mulch to protect crown.  Once the plant starts to grow look out for snails hiding in the early foliage as they can, if allowed, nibble through the stem.
