Flowering Months
Established Verbascum plants require little maintenance. Deadhead faded flower spikes to encourage more Verbascum flowers to be produced. Cut back old stems at the base in autumn and remove any damaged and yellowing foliage. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant.
Gradually acclimatise Verbascum plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Grow Verbascum in sunny or semi shaded borders in neutral or alkaline, poor well drained soil.
