Flowering

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Ligularia require moist soil, and so pond-margins are ideal growing sites - but other sites can be fine, as long as the soil can be kept moist. They also need some shade, particularly from the midday sun.

 

Propagating by division

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Using a fork dig up plant, trying to keep the root ball as complete as possible. Split the root ball at the centre with a sharp knife or a spade, or by placing two garden forks back-to-back into the middle of the root ball, and pushing the fork handles apart.to lever the root ball apart. Replant the new clumps to the same depth as the original, and water well. Keep well watered until established.
