Antirrhinum are best planted in a well-drained soil of sand, chalk or loam within an alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in a sheltered area of full sun or part shade. Antirrhinum make a fantastic addition to flower beds, borders and pots within a cottage or courtyard garden setting.

Amend the planting area with a generous amount of organic matter and combine well with the native soil. Dig a hole that is a little deeper and wider than the root ball and set your plant in place, watering thoroughly once in position.
When first planted, ensure soil is kept moist for the first few weeks and during periods of dry weather. Antirrhinum do not react well to excessive winter wet and should be protected by a layer of mulch in bouts of cold and wet weather. Deadhead your plants once the flowering period is over to promote continued development and further growth for the following season. As Antirrhinum continues to mature, you may need to stake in place to retain a healthy structure.
It is possible to propagate Antirrhinum by softwood cuttings in summer.
