The best place to plant these flowers is in a soil that is rich and moist. They are partial to full
shade, but they can also take a little bit of the morning sun. A tip that can help is to note that the
more sun in the area, the more water your plants will need. They are dormant in most cases
in the summer, so when you plant them near perennials that are emerging late, they will fill in the
gaps that are left when the plants die back. It would be best if you spaced these plants at least a
foot apart. That space is going to let your garden has a chance to imitate what these plants look
like in the wild.
These will need water regularly. The bluebells will not be able to thrive in an area that is
drought-like. The fertilizer is essential as well because they need fertile soil. That will ensure
their health and better growth. Because these flowers multiply so rapidly, they make a great
starter plant if you are new to gardening. They are not high maintenance, and they don't need
much pruning. If you want to control the spreading of their seeds, you should deadhead the
plants immediately after the blooms fade. Mulch will be required as well, but only lightly.
Microbes are going to break down the mulch, and in turn, it will incorporate matter that is
organic into that soil. When you add the mulch, it will also help keep your soil evenly moist
around your plants.
When the season comes to an end, the foliage will turn yellow and die back. You can cut them
back again when it has become a brownish yellow. You should divide and transplant in the fall
when your plants are dormant in the fullest. If you do this is the spring, you will disrupt the
bloom. The bluebells grow from rhizomes, and you can dig them up and then cut those rhizomes
apart. You want to make sure that the rhizomes each have a node. Allow the newly cut sections
that you have to dry out for a few days before you replant. These plants grow best on their own,
but you can add other plants if you wish to do so. They can grow in exciting areas and unique
places as well. Plants can have trouble growing under black walnut trees, but these can. That is
one thing that sets them apart.
