How to take care of Osteospermum Bicolour
They are suitable for rockeries or at the foot of a south-facing wall where they make a quick ground cover with abundant flowers. Plant them after all danger of frost has passed in well-drained soil. Remove dead flowers heads as they fade to prolong flowering. They are best grown in pots in a greenhouse or conservatory at a temperature of 7ºC. They like a sunny position and water sparingly. Fertilise regularly throughout the summer using liquid fertiliser diluted to the correct strength. Alternatively use slow release fertiliser pellets mixed through the soil.
