Dig a hole the same depth and width as the root ball of your plant. Space companion plants 40cm (16in) apart from one another and mix a generous amount of peat moss into the planting area, mixing thoroughly to keep the ground moist. Water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil into place.
Ensure you provide a layer of mulch in spring to deter weeds and to retain moisture. Water regularly while the plant is still growing and through periods of dry weather. Deadhead regularly to prolong their flowering period.
It is possible to propagate Vernonia by seed or division.
