Planting Conditions

To cultivate Trollius 'Lemon Queen' successfully, opt for heavy, water-retentive soil to ensure adequate moisture for the plant's growth.

Apply a balanced fertiliser according to package instructions to provide essential nutrients for vigorous growth and abundant blooms. With proper watering and feeding, Trollius 'Lemon Queen' will thrive and display its stunning flowers in your garden.

Trollius 'Lemon Queen' requires minimal care beyond regular watering and fertilisation. Deadhead faded flowers to encourage continuous blooming and maintain the plant's tidy appearance.
