Planting young plants

From Mid Autumn TO Mid Spring

Plant Hebes in autumn or in spring. They thrive in most well drained garden soils including chalk, and in full sun. The tender species require wall protection in inland gardens.

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Mid Summer TO Late Summer

Take cuttings 2-4 inches of non-flowering growths during summer; insert the cuttings in equal parts of peat and sand and place in a cold frame. Varieties of H. speciosa are best rooted in a greenhouse which can be kept frost free. The following spring, pot on the rooted cuttings into 3 inch pots of John Innes No 1. Plunge the pots outdoors and transplant the hardy species and varieties into their growing positions in late summer. Tender varieties should be potted on and overwintered in a cold frame.
