Cirsium prefer a sunny spot and will grow well in most moist, but well-drained soils. Apply a generous layer of mulch after planting to retain moisture levels and water well during the summer months until established. Applying a general liquid fertiliser in spring will help promote healthy growth. Divide congested plants in autumn or early spring and if desired, cut back hard after flowering to prevent self-seeding.
