Choose a sunny or partly shaded position. Hypericum is a versatile plant coping well in poor, dry soils. Alternatively grow Hypericum in patio containers filled with loam-based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season while young Hypericums plants become established. Hypericum requires little attention, but benefits from a trim each year to keep it neat and tidy. After flowering, prune Hypericum by lightly cutting back shoots to a healthy pair of buds.
