How to plant Incarvillea

Incarvillea are hardy to around -10C and can be planted directly outside in spring in most areas. If spring temperatures are cooler than -10C, they can be potted up and grown on in a cool greenhouse first.

— Plant the tubers into temporary pots in spring and grow-on in a sheltered position to transplant later when established. Alternatively, you can plant them directly into a well-dug, weed-free space in borders providing the soil is not frozen.

— Choose a position which receives full sun.

— Plant the tubers 5-10cm deep with any buds or shoots facing upwards. If they are already in leaf, the leaves should be exposed above the soil surface.

— Space the plants 15-20cm apart.

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