Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

One of the few plants which is pest free - pests simply don't like them! Astilbe can be prone to powdery mildew, but this can be prevented by spacing the plants out adequately to allow for good air circulation.

Water regularly

Astilbe will not tolerate dry soil - water regularly and keep particularly well watered after planting, until your Astilbe is established.

Partial shade

Astilbe thrive in areas of dappled or partial shade, and are happy in damp locations.

Any moisture retaining soil

Astilbe will tolerate any soil, but make sure it never dries out. Add plenty of well rotted manure or compost when planting, for added nutrients.

Not required

Astilbe does not require feeding https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
