Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Solanum villosum needs full sun or partial shade and moist but well-drained soil. It needs a slightly alkaline soil to thrive (pH 7.8 is ideal). Prepare the soil by working in lots of compost before planting. Space the plants so that they’ll have plenty of room to grow. They can also make an interesting container plant.
