How to plant Gypsophila

Gypsophila are fully hardy and can tolerate winter temperatures down to -20C. This means you can plant them directly outside in pots or borders without the need for frost protection.

— Soak the roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting out.

— Plant your bare roots into temporary pots in spring and grow-on outdoors to transplant later when established. Alternatively, you can plant them directly into prepared borders.

— Plant the roots so that they are fully submerged with the woody stems exposed

— Space the plants 20-30cm apart.

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

— Cut the stems down to 3cm above soil level in autumn.
