A frothy multi-flowered plant that will give light, shade and height to any mid-summer garden border. Growing to a height of 120-150cms this Thalictrum is worth growing just for the beautiful black stems, let alone the huge clusters of bright lilac pink flowers and lacey leaves.

Thalictrum are easy to grow from bare roots, giving a lovely airy display of flowers throughout the summer months. Thalictrum are part of the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae, but there the similarity ends. They are not low growing or yellow!

Thalictrum are perennial plants that will grow in any reasonably good garden soil in a sunny to partially shaded position so are ideal to grow in an East-facing or West-facing aspect, so they receive sun and shade, but they do not like being waterlogged at any time of the year so a well-drained site is imperative.

Thalicutrum Specific Advice.

Thalictrum are perennial plants that will grow in any reasonably good garden soil in a sunny to partially shaded position so are ideal to grow in an East-facing or West-facing aspect, so they receive sun and shade. They do not like being waterlogged at any time of the year so a well-drained site is imperative.

General Advice.

Bare root perennials will benefit from a soak in a bucket of cold water for an hour before planting, to ensure that the roots are fully hydrated. Dig a large enough hole to plant the whole root, without damaging it, and incorporate fresh compost with the soil to aid drainage.  Using a mychorrhizal plant powder sprinkled onto the roots will help to ensure that good root growth is achieved. The powder contains symbiotic fungi that will help the roots to draw in moisture and increase root spread.  This boosts the plants overall and they are quicker to establish and produce more healthy plants.

Plant not too deeply but making sure the roots are covered with compost/soil mixture.  The crowns (the tops of the plants) should be 2/3cms below soil level.  If you can see a tiny amount of shoot or greenery make sure this is just above ground level.  Firm gently in, ensuring there are no air pockets under or around the roots and water the area well.  This should be all the moisture they need until you can see the plants are actively growing. Once your plants are 15-20cms in height they can be fed using a multi-purpose feed.

Place a cane or label in the ground next to your bare root perennial just before you cover the roots over so that you know where and what you have planted.

*Do not plant bare perennials if the ground is waterlogged or frozen. If you need to plant when a very cold spell of weather is forecast, cover the area with cardboard or plastic sheeting to keep the worst of the cold out.

Alternatively, a successful way to start off your bare root perennials is to plant up each bare root plant into a pot using fresh compost. Ensure that the pot is large enough for the roots to spread evenly in the pot. Plant not too deeply but making sure the roots are covered with compost. The crowns (the tops of the plants) should be 2/3cms below soil level. Water in well and place a label into each pot. Leave until early spring or once the weather is more clement, when they can be planted into their final flowering positions in the garden border.
