Eremurus Helena is a pure white ruiter hybrid and makes a stunning display in the summer garden. They are always a talking point at Hampton Court Palace Show.
Before planting cultivate the soil to a depth of 15-20cms and dig in organic matter to provide food when they are growing. Create a shallow planting round hole 15-20cm (6-8in) deep and wider than the Eremurus Helena to be planted. The centre of the 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.
Feed regularly during the growing season with high potash and phosphate foods such as bone meal or tomato food.
Plant 12-24″ apart in a well drained soil.
