Aloysia are best planted in a well-drained soil of loam, chalk or sand within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best planted in a sheltered position that receives full sun with the protection of a wall or fence. Aloysia are well suited to beds and borders within courtyard, cottage and informal garden settings.

Amend the planting area with coarse grit and organic mater to improve the drainage.
Apply a layer of mulch before winter to protect your plants. Cut back to ground level where it should re-sprout from the base in the late spring or early summer. These plants will benefit from regular fertilisation consisting of organic vegetable plant food- this should be applied during active growth every 4 weeks if left outdoors and every 2 weeks if kept indoors. Take care when watering as the roots will die if always kept moist.
It is possible to propagate Aloysia by softwood cuttings.
