Planting Conditions

Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss is our robust and adaptable perennial, thriving in well-drained soil and preferring a sunny or partially shaded location. It can endure various soil types but shows a preference for slightly acidic to neutral soils. To ensure optimal growth, prepare the planting area by removing any weeds and incorporating compost or well-rotted manure. When planting Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss, allow ample spacing of approximately 30 cm between plants to facilitate unrestricted growth and prevent overcrowding. Plant them at the same depth as they were in their previous container or pot, and water thoroughly after planting to establish a healthy start. For container planting, ensure the pot has efficient drainage, and utilise a high-quality potting mix for proper water retention and drainage. Incorporating a slow-release fertiliser into the soil can provide essential nutrients, promoting robust growth. Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss proves to be a low-maintenance plant, ideal for borders, rock gardens, and containers. With the right planting conditions and care, it will reward you with charming clusters of flowers, creating an enchanting display throughout the growing season.

Watering & Feeding

Watering and feeding Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss require thoughtful consideration to ensure their optimal health and development. Water the plants at least once a week during the Summer months until they are well-established. However, exercise caution and minimise watering in Winter to prevent waterlogging. Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss, once established, showcases a remarkable tolerance to drought conditions. Therefore, avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot and other detrimental diseases. Only water during extended dry spells, providing just enough to maintain soil moisture. Feeding Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss is crucial for their overall vitality. In Spring, apply a balanced fertiliser to promote healthy growth. Additionally, incorporate organic fertilisers such as compost or well-rotted manure around the plant. Alternatively, use a general-purpose fertiliser as per the manufacturer's instructions for periodic feedings throughout the growing season. Consistent watering and feeding practices will encourage Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss to produce more vibrant flowers and maintain robust health year after year. Adjust the watering schedule based on seasonal conditions, and provide the necessary nutrients to support their growth and vitality.

General Care

Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss is a robust perennial which demands minimal care, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. To ensure its well-being and flourishing growth, follow these basic care guidelines: Firstly, Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss thrives in full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. While it tolerates some shade, optimal flowering is achieved in sunnier conditions. Once established, it demonstrates remarkable drought tolerance, but regular watering during extended dry periods is beneficial for overall health. Promote healthy growth and abundant flowering by deadheading spent blooms regularly, and consider cutting back flowers after the initial flush to encourage secondary blooms within the season and prevent seeding. When it comes to pruning, removing spent flowers during the season stimulates further growth. After flowering and as Autumn transitions to Winter, prune Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss to ground level. This is best done before the plants go completely dormant and the old flower spikes turn brown. Additionally, consider lifting and dividing the plants every three to five years. This practice revitalises the original clump and provides new plants for propagation elsewhere in your garden. With these care practices, Bergenia Dragonfly Angel Kiss will not only thrive but also enhance your garden with its resilient beauty.
