Lightly fertilise and mulch your plants during the spring as this will retain moisture levels and suppress any weeds. Water Thalictrum regularly to keep the soil cool and moist, especially during periods of drought. During the autumn, cut Thalictrum to ground level to ensure healthy growth for the following season. Propagate by seed when fresh in autumn, or by division in spring. Fully hardy perennial. Bare roots take up to 6-8 weeks to appear after planting.
