Sowing & planting
||150 - 200
Plant my common milkweed
Plant in loamy, rich, well-drained soil, in full sun, mixing with some leaf mold.
Grow in a bed of wildflower, as milkweeds naturally spread through underground sprouts.
Water my common milkweed
Water twice a week the first month.
In open soil, watering is not necessary, except in case of intense drought.
Fertilize my common milkweed
A small intake of natural compost fertilizer will not hurt in early winter, to keep a rich soil around your milkweed.
Cut down my common milkweed
Cut dry stems in the fall to "aerate" the massif.
