  • Growing Notes

    Position: Part-Shade to avoid drying out

    Temperature: 3C - 25C

    Water: Kept in moist well drained soil, do not allow to fully dry out.

    Feeding: High Potash feed every other day in the growing season (Spring to Autumn)


    Pot into a rich compost potting media and position in a sunny spot (part-shade is best). Water freely from spring to autumn and apply a high potash feed frequently (every other day if possible).

    Over wintering

    During winter, water sparingly and ensure there is a minimum night temperature of 2-3 °C. You can repot, if necessary, in early spring once growth recommences. When it is impractical to increase the pot size, top dress annually by removing a 5-10cm (2-4in) layer of compost and replacing with fresh compost.

    Brugmansia is happy to a minimum of 3 °C with no problems. In the UK overwinter in a heated greenhouse or conservatory to retain leaves and slow growth. A garage, shed or unheated greenhouse will protect the plant but it will lose its leaves and then regain them in spring. Heavy fleece will insure the plant survives the coldest parts of winter. 


    Slugs and snails can be detered by potting grit, slug pellets or beer traps. Other bugs can be treated with garden centre pest sprays. Avoid water logged soil.

    All parts are highly toxic if ingested and sap may be an irritant. Caution should be advised to buyers with adventurous pets or sm
