Cultivation Instructions

Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 15-20cms and dig in organic matter (if available) to provide food when they are growing. Create a shallow planting round hole 15-20cm (6-8in) deep and wider than the eremurus to be planted. The centre of the eremurus crown should be positioned on the centre of the crown on a mound of coarse grit, sharp sand or soil, so that the central growing point is just below the soil surface. If planting in clumps space the crowns 30-90cm (1-3ft) depending on the size and type of cultivar. Ensure soils are well drained and do not dry out in the summer.

Care tips:

Work well when grown in the back of borders or as a centre piece in the garden.

Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as  bone meal or tomato food.
