Choose a spot in your garden where your Bleeding Hearts can grow in moist well-draining soil and partial shade (next to a shade tree is the perfect spot). Place your plant in a hole that is twice as wide but no deeper than the container it came in and backfill with a mix of existing soil and organic matter for added nutrients. Give your plant a slow, deep watering to encourage the roots to settle.

Bleeding Hearts plants are low maintenance and generally do not need fertilizing. If you know that the soil in your garden is not nutrient-rich, an annual fertilizing may be necessary. We recommend an spring feeding of all-purpose fertilizer.

Adding a layer of mulch around your Bleeding Hearts Plant will protect the roots of your plant while retaining moisture in the soil. Opting for an organic mulch will also add nutrients to the soil as it decomposes. Make sure to leave a gap between the mulch and the base of the soil to prevent bacteria build-up.
