Pot up coreopsis plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before transplanting into borders and containers. Grow coreopsis in fertile, well drained soil in sunny or semi shaded position.
Water coreopsis regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded coreopsis flowers regularly to encourage more blooms to be produced throughout the summer. In autumn, cut back old stems and apply a dry mulch to protect the plant from winter cold.

  1. Beautiful

    By Susan I'Anson 07-08-2014

    Hot these last year and some more this year. 2013 ones have really impressed me, so many flowers, and glowered for several months so far. Cannot wait god next year when they all come out. The bees like them

  2. September magic!

    By Denise Doherty 15-09-2012

    I still can't believe that I had success with all 72 plug plants. They started to flower about 3 weeks ago and are still looking beautiful. I used them for under planting in a couple of my borders and they manage to brighten up these areas irrespective of the weather. So easy to dead head for more flowers. Just hope the frosts stay away for a while yet!
