How to take care of Bears Breeches

Bears Breeches can be invasive, so either plant Bears Breeches in large containers or in a permanent place at the back of the border. Bears Breeches dislike being disturbed. Young plants need extra phosphorus to encourage good root development.

Plant Bears Breeches in a well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Bears Breeches are hardy but the crowns need mulch for the first two winters. Cut back to nearly ground level once the flowering season is over.

Bears Breeches often take two - three years to bloom. Divide Bears Breeches after 3 -5 blooming seasons in either spring or autumn. The easiest way to increase your plants is by taking cuttings in late autumn and early winter.

Bears Breeches will fail to grow if your soil is too heavy and has poor drainage. All Bears Breeches tend to perform unevenly, even when grown in full sun. Snails and slugs can do substantial damage if left unchecked.
