Gunnera manicata requires a moist, boggy soil, either in sun, part shade or full shade with shelter from cold, drying winds. It is important to consider the ultimate size of this large, robust perennial when planting.
Cut back the old foliage in autumn and cover the crowns of Gunnera plants with a dry mulch of straw to protect them over the winter months.
