Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball. Space companion plants 40cm (16in) apart and mix a generous amount of peat moss to the planting area, mixing thoroughly to keep the ground moist. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place.
Althaea are low maintenance plants requiring little care. They will need regular watering throughout summer and should be staked, especially if located in a situation that is prone to adverse weather conditions.
It is possible to propagate Althaea by seed sown in mid-summer.
