Grow Gypsophila plants in sunny borders. Gypsophila plants dislike particularly wet soils in winter. Plant them in a well drained soil, adding compost or well rotted manure to amend heavy clay soils.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season until Gypsophila plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant.
