How to Grow and Look after Your Astrantia
They do grow in the sun, but they particularly thrive in woodland gardens in moist, fertile soil and full or partial shade.
In autumn the perennials ned a good tidy up, the foliage and stems should be trimmed back to the flower (if you don’t want them to self-seed)
These do self-seed if you keep the flower heads on after they have finished flowered.
They can also be lifted and divided in spring if you wish.
