Astrantia Shaggy

In this Soto Masterclass Max explains the winning features of the very popular Astrania Shaggy. He covers how Soto suggest using the plant and its key characteristics.

The video explains that the Astrantia Shaggy loves being in the sun, partial shade and shade, it is pet friendly and has show stopping flower heads.

Watch to hear the best way to care for the Shaggy. Max suggests giving the Astrantia a liquid feed every ten to fourteen days during the spring and summer. In the spring cover with a few inches of compost to give the Astrantia the nutrients it needs to grow. 

Max explains how to prolong the flowering season by cutting down at the base. Read the Astrantia masterclass for a full explanation. In the autumn either leave the flower heads of the Shaggy for winter interest or watch to see how Max cuts the foliage back with secateurs for a neater finish. 

Max mentions not to worry about any yellow leaves, it is the natural cycle of the plant.
