Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Gypsophila do not grow well in acid soils. Grow in a deep, alkaline, very well-drained soil, in full sun. The perennial species also dislike winter wet so avoid planting in a site that can become waterlogged in periods of prolonged wet weather. Young plants grown from seed should planted out in a well drained sunny, sheltered spot in autumn. Plant them 60cm apart.
