Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Wild bergamot can have issues with slugs and snails as well as powdery mildew. For Slugs and Snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire to surround the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves. For Powdery Mildew, try to keep the leaves dry by watering at the soil and preventing water splashing up from the soil. MORE

Water Often in Summer

Full SunMORE

Full Sun

Wild Bergamot will prefer a spot where it receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.MORE

Light Feeding

In Spring and if the plant has overwintered it is a good idea to give the soil a nitrogen-boost with a feed such as chicken manure pellets.MORE

Prune for Winter

Just before winter sets in cut the plant all the way back to the base for the best chance of it surviving over winter.MORE
