How to Care for Astilbe Vision in Red
After purchasing an Astilbe Vision in Red plant, be sure to review our recommended care instructions to ensure your plant is happy and healthy for years to come.
How do I plant my Astilbe Vision in Red Plant?
We recommend you dig a hole that is twice as wide but no deeper than the pot your Astilbe came in. Gently remove your plant and place it in the center of the hole. Backfill by mixing the original soil with compost or topsoil. Water deep and slowly to let the roots settle.
How often should I water Astilbe Vision in Red?
Astilbe prefers moist soil so water regularly as needed. To check the soil, stick a finger in the surrounding area and if the soil is dry several inches down, it is time to water. Watering may need to be increased when dealing with a newly planted Astilbe.
Do I need to prune my Astilbe Vision in Red?
Ideally, you want to do your heavier pruning in the spring before the plant blooms. Remove stems and foliage that were damaged by winter weather. Throughout the season, however, you can remove spent blooms to maintain a cleaner look.
What should I fertilize Astilbe Vision in Red
We recommend using an all-purpose fertilizer for this pollinating perennial. Follow the directions on the package, but we recommend you apply once in early spring to encourage blooms and once again after the plant blooms to maintain vigor throughout the growing season.
