Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Doronicum is generally pest-free but may be susceptible to powdery mildew. To prevent this, you should space apart the plants adequately to prevent overcrowding and tight, humid conditions. Water at the base into the soil, not on the leaves, and try to prevent the water splashing off the soil and onto the leaves.

Water regularly in summer

This plant needs nothing more than rain water throughout most of the year. During hot, prolonged dry periods in summer however, you may have to give the plant a good watering several times a week. If the plant starts to look distressed and the soil around it is very dry, then give the plant some more water and check up on it the next day.

Partial shade

Doronicum prefers a position in partial shade, with between 4-6 hours of sunlight per day and some shade in the afternoon.

Any moist, well-drained soil

Plant in any moist, well-drained soil. If your soil is particularly poor or clay heavy, add some garden compost with perlite to improve drainage.

Feeding not required

This is a low maintenance plant which gets all the nutrients it needs from the soil. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
