Sowing, Seeds, Planting Gaura prefer a position in full sun, with a light, well-drained, moderately fertile soil. They are best planted in spring or autumn. Sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi into the base of the planting hole, water well and apply a mulch around the base of the plant. Dislikes excessive winter wet so ensure good drainage on heavy soil.
Care Tips Once established, cut them back to half their height in late autumn, rather than all the way to the ground. This little bit of plant material provides some protection during the winter months as Gaura can be susceptible to winter wet and cold. In early spring they can be cut back to 5cm (2in) from ground level before new growth appears.
