You may wish to amend the soil with a generous layer of compost to enhance the nutritional value of the planting area. They should be placed at a depth that matches the root ball and 30cm (12in) apart from companion plants.
During early winter, apply a generous layer of compost to the base of your plants. Protect from colder conditions by adding a dry mulch consisting of straw or chopped leaves to protect your plant from repetitive freezing and thawing. Tidy your plant during winter by removing old, dead or diseased foliage and trim back to a desirable shape.
It is possible to propagate Bergenia by division in autumn or spring.
