Brugmansia are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of chalk, clay, sand or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area that receives full sun. Brugmansia are well suited to being planted in containers and they suit cottage and informal garden settings as well as a conservatory or greenhouse.

It is recommended to plant Brugmansia in containers so that they are easily transferable during cold weather. A well-draining potting media is best to plant them in. Water thoroughly and deeply after planting.
Ensure your plants are watered thoroughly if they are left to grow outdoors from spring to autumn alongside applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. In winter, the watering schedule should be considerable reduced. Brugmansia are tolerant to hard pruning which may be required if it starts to lose its shape or imposes on companion plants. You should be able to cut back to within 2.5cm (1in) of older wood. Pruning should be undertaken in October when plants are ideally transferred indoors.
It is possible to propagate Brugmansia by semi-ripe cuttings or softwood cuttings that should be inserted into sandy, free-draining compost in spring or autumn.
