Just planted my new roscoeas. Planting time 5 minutes.
Preparation time 4 hours. They require that perfect situation of, not too much sun or shade, A free draining , moisture retentive, humus rich soil. First fetch a sack of peat. Having spent £40 on 4 plants, they are not getting recycled rubbish. Dig over area, removing any weeds and roots. Add peat. Fork in. Add bag of grit. Fork in. give it another good fork over just to make sure. Plant.
Time for coffee, then I can prepare other bed for meconopsis.
