Alchemilla are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil or loam, chalk, sand or clay within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area that receives full sun. Alchemilla are well suited to flower beds and borders within a wildflower meadow, cottage or informal garden setting. They also make a gorgeous addition to a cut flower arrangement.

Allow plenty of growing room for this plant and space them around 20-30cm (8-12 in) apart. Amend the planting area with a generous amount of compost and plant at the same depth as the root ball. Firm the soil back into place and water well.
Once established, Alchemilla requires little care and maintenance. Regular deadheading is necessary to keep your plants looking neat and tidy and to minimise any self-seeding. Regular watering is only required when the plant is located in full sun or during times of extreme heat.
It is possible to propagate Alchemilla by seed in spring or division in spring or autumn.
