Pot up floss flower plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When agaratum plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun on moist, fertile, well drained soil.
Water regularly until ageratum plants are fully established. Deadhead faded flowers throughout the summer to encourage more blooms to be produced.
