Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. In spring, remove old stems and apply a mulch of well rotted manure to the base of the plant. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps to maintain their vigour.
Caution: Harmful if eaten. Pot up bareroots at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Plant them so that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level and grow on in a cool frost free position. When plants are fully rooted into their pots, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days and transplant into borders. Grow Chinese lantern plants in any moist, well drained soil, in full sun or semi shade. Physalis may become invasive. To restrict their spread, try growing Chinese lanterns in patio containers in loam based compost such as John Innes No.2.
