How to plant Lychnis

 

Dig a hole that is the same depth and width as the root ball and gently place into position. Companion plants should be spaced 38-45cm (15-18in) apart to provide extra room to spread and grow.




 

 

How to care for Lychnis

 

Water Lychnis regularly. Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of your plant in summer to help retain moisture levels and deter weeds. Deadhead Lychnis after the flowering period as this will prolong and encourage further growth for the following season. Cut your plant right down in the autumn as this will also aid in healthy growth.




 

How to propagate Lychnis

 

It is possible to propagate Lychnis by seed, division or basal cuttings. As Lychnis are relatively short lived, it is recommended that they are divided every 2-3 years during the spring.
