Nemophila are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of loam, sand, chalk or clay within a neutral, acidic or alkaline PH balance. They are best positioned in a sheltered area of full sun or part shade. Nemophila are well suited to flower beds and borders within a courtyard or informal garden setting. They also make fine additions to pots and containers.

Heavy soils can be amended with organic matter to improve drainage. Dig a hole the same depth and twice the width of your plant, spreading the roots out before settling into place. Space companion plants 45cm (18in) apart to allow room for plants to spread as they mature. Water thoroughly and deeply after planting.
Water regularly as the plants mature and during periods of drought. Keep soil consistently moist throughout active growth. Apply a layer of mulch to keep soil cool and to suppress any weeds.
It is possible to propagate Nemophila by seed sown in spring and autumn.
