Pot up bare root plants and grow them on in frost free conditions. When they are fully rooted into their pots, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days and transplant into 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 plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant.
