Soil may need to be amended with compost before planting. For improved health and development, plant your Aconitum with a generous layer of mulch to retain moisture levels. Always take care when handling Aconitum as they are a highly toxic plant. Always wear protective gloves when planting or transferring. Take extra caution with open mounds and do not ingest.
Aconitum may require staking is planted in an exposed site or during periods of adverse weather conditions. If grown in full sun, ensure your plant is watered on a regular basis as they do thrive best in cooler climates, taking extra caution during periods of drought. Prune in the autumn to ensure healthy regrowth for the following season.
It is possible to propagate Aconitum by division or seed during late autumn. Please take care whilst handling this plant and always wear gloves.
