Plant my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
In open soil, plant the cimicifuga in a cool, wet, fertile, rich in organic matter soil and in a shady or semi-shaded spot.
In pots, plant cimicifugas in a container at least 40 cm in diameter. Before planting, open the root ball a little to break the outer roots that form circles. If the root ball has dried, soak it for 30 minutes.
Fill the pot or planter with ordinary soil and compost, arrange the plant, then finish filling. Adjust the level of the clod to not bury the leaves or stems, tamp well then water.
Water my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
Water during the summer season, once a week in case of dry weather, in the morning if possible. if your plant is in a pot, water once a week.
Fertilize my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
With a respectful approach to soil life, it's always better to fertilize a little in advance with organic material that will decompose; spread out a compost that isn't entirely decomposed, with well decomposed manure at the plant's base, and incorporate over 10 cm with a hoe. This operation is carried out in winter so that earthworms and bacteria have enough time to do their job.
Propagate my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
After two or three years, you can propagate your cimicifugas by division using a spade: cut the clod in half and replant the second half in a cool or wet, fertile soil, in shade or semi-shade.
Mulch my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
Mulching the perennial plants will save you from watering and weeding and will even fertilize the soil a bit as it decomposes. When choosing, know that dry wood chips are the most inert, but they will last for a longer time. Fresh wood chips and leaves enrich the soil but must be changed often. Grass cuttings are to be used mixed with something else in a layer that is at most 1 cm thick. Mulch with a thickness of at least 5 cm to provide a good level of efficiency.
Cut down my cimicifuga 'white pearl'
Deciduous perennials don't keep their above-ground growth during the winter, they survive with their underground systems. At the end of the season, the foliage and the dried flower stems can be cut off without second thought. Don't touch the root or the future buds that are emerging from the soil
