They look best in flower beds and borders within courtyard, informal and cottage garden settings, or in containers or pots.

How to plant Osteospermum

 

Make sure you water these pants deeply and thoroughly at the time of planting and continue to do so whilst they are young, taking care not to waterlog the soil.




 

 

How to care for Osteospermum

 

Water regularly to prevent plants from drying out, taking care not to overwater the soil as this will cause detriment to the root system. For your plants to thrive, you may wish to feed on a weekly basis with a general fertiliser as this will promote flowering. It is possible to deadhead wilted flower as this will prolong flowering and will neaten your plant when it has finished blooming. Provide your plants with winter protection as they are not hardy.






 

How to propagate Osteospermum
