How to take care of Astrantia major Claret
Astrantia or Masterwort plants are very popular for flower arrangements both fresh and dried. This variety is a hardy herbaceous perennial. You can plant from late autumn until early spring. It needs sun but prefer a cool partially shaded position. Use a well-drained soil mixed with organic matter. Flowering period is between summer and autumn. Take away dead flower heads after flowering. Lift and divide every 3-4years. Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
