1 x 1 Litre Potted Plant (KA4920)

Plant in a position with full sun. Knapweed is drought tolerant once established and will happily tolerate almost any soil, except those that are excessively waterlogged.
Water knapweed plants regularly until fully established. This plant will self-seed freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of knapweed flowers as the blooms fade. In autumn, cut back old stems to just above ground level to make way for new growth in the spring.
