Pot up bidens plugs and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting at a later date. Pinch out the growing points while the plants are still small to encourage more stems. Regular pinching will create a shapely compact plant that is perfect for containers. When plants are well grown acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days prior to planting them in their final positions. Grow Bidens plants in containers, hanging baskets and borders in any well drained soil in full sun.
Feed and water bidens plants regularly. Cut back faded flower stems to encourage more flowers to be produced. Although bidens is generally grown as an annual, if containers are moved to a bright frost free position over winter, they be kept for the following year.
