Propagation

Seed - sow spring in situ[6]. Plants can be transplanted[7].

Division in March or October with care[6]. Larger divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions. We have found that it is better to pot up the smaller divisions and grow them on in light shade in a cold frame until they are well established before planting them out in late spring or early summer.

Root cuttings 10cm long, November/December in a cold frame.
