Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

The soil should be fertile with a generous amount of organic manner in the form of compost, manure or other decayed organic matter in addition to, perhaps, an application of a complete fertiliser in spring. Heleniums should be grown in full sun average to moist soil with good drainage. They are drought tolerant, but should be watered on planting and regularly until established.

 

Propagating by division

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Divide the clumps in Spring, and replant the divisions where required, in a sunny position. Divide the clumps by digging the clump up with a garden fork, then putting two garden forks back-to-back into the clump, and levering apart.
