Amend the planting area by loosening the soil and mixing in a generous amount of compost. Dig a hole that is twice the diameter of the root ball so that it is level with the soil surface. Once settled in place, firm the soil and water thoroughly.
Gaillardias are low maintenance plants once established. Water well during periods of dry conditions and apply a balanced fertiliser in the spring when new growth appears. There is no need to deadhead these plants, but you may wish to remove spent flower heads to neaten your plants overall appearance.
It is possible to propagate Gaillardia by division in spring or root cuttings in winter.
