Care Information

Planting Advice for Dierama:

  • Plant in an open, sunny position in a fertile soil that drains well - Dierama doesn’t like dry summers or wet winters.
  • Heavy soils can be improved by adding well-rotted compost and grit. Alternatively, they can be grown in a pot.
  • When planting, ensure that the top of the compost is level with the surrounding soil.
  • Water your potted plant well then dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots if crowded.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

 

Aftercare Advice for Dierama:

  • Keep plants well-watered but do not allow them to sit in wet.
  • Mulch well in winter for the first couple of seasons.

 

Pruning Advice for Dierama:

  • Plants do not usually need cutting back, although dead leaves can be removed in spring.
