    PLANTING

    FROM EARLY SPRING TO EARLY SPRING

    In the garden, plant out after the last frost in moist but well-drained soil in full sun which will produce the best leaf colour. Plants can also grow well although less colourful in partial shade. Compact container grown specimens can be planted out to good effect for formal mass planting much as the Victorians did in formal gardens. If growing in the greenhouse in cooler regions, grow in full light and water freely during the growing season. Water sparingly and keep in a well ventilated spot in winter.
