Anchusa require deep planting holes so their long roots can grow correctly and efficiently whilst absorbing necessary nourishment and moisture.
Anchusa dislike winter wet so protect them with a generous layer of mulch. Deadhead after the initial flush of flowers to encourage a second wave of blooms. Cut the top growth after flowering to encourage a subsequent rosette of healthy, lush foliage.
It is possible to propagate Anchusa by root cuttings in autumn or early winter. Alternatively, divide clumps during early spring, however it will self-seed freely.
