Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

A tap rooted perennial, growing gaura plants do not like to be moved from place to place, so plant them where you want them to remain for several years. Plant them into a full sun area with rich soil and deep drainage. Growth needs of the gaura plant include organic soil. This encourages development of the taproot. The plants are drought tolerant once established, consequently, little care of gaura is needed. Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

 

Propagation

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Propagate by seed in pots in a cold frame from spring to early summer or propagate by basal cuttings or softwood cuttings in spring or semi-hardwood cuttings in summer

 

Planting in containers

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Use good quality compost for container growing and raise the pot on 'pot feet' through the winter months to help with drainage.
