How to plant Glycyrrhiza

— Soak the Glycyrrhiza (or Yunnan Liquorice) roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting out.

— Plant your Glycyrrhiza bare roots into temporary pots in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

— Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots.

— Plant the roots so that they are fully submerged with the shoots just below the surface or any top growth exposed.

— Plant in borders or containers in early summer once in full growth.

— Space the Yunnan Liquorice plants 15-25cm apart.

— Water-in after planting and keep hydrated when in growth.
