Planting And Care
The mulch should feel moist but not wet. Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering. Keep moist in winter. Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch.
Senecio Herreianus Care
Plant bulbs in autumn. Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out.
|Sunlight||Full sun to part shade|
|Fertilizer||Apply any organic fertilizer|
