Bleeding Heart
« on: July 14, 2009, 08:50 »
Early this season I split my Bleeding Heart into 3, and transplanted.  One of them has been a good food supply for some small creature, and is now looking very sad.  Will I be able to cut it right down, to enable me to plant some small annuals.

Many thanks again, to all those who have and will still help with my many (what seem like trivial) questions.  Whether it's about my veggies', flowers, or my 2 gorgeous hens.

Don't forget that they die down anyway in the summer. If you cut it back, do you want to replant right on top of it ? If you do, the poor thing may just give up the ghost completely, seeing as you've just moved it, and it'll have no roots to speak of to feed  itself yet.

I'd not plant on top, just around it.

Bleeding Heart seeds or cuttings
« Reply #4 on: January 23, 2010, 13:25 »
Hi there

We want to start growing Bleeding Heart - are they started off from seeds or cuttings?

Also, I can't find a UK stockist of them - p'raps I'm not looking in the right places - any help to source seeds would be much appreciated.

Thanks  :wub:

They don't set a lot of seed so may be difficult to find :(
My ones were bought from Wilko when they do their '3 dormant plants in a box in spring for a few pounds' offer...much easier than seeds and only a little more expensive :D

You could also look for a neighbour or fellow plotholder who has them and ask for a bit of root division.
Mine don't die back in summer at all. They don't flower after spring but the foliage stays lush for months after. Once they're established they grow like crazy. Mine also drops all its seeds and I'm forever pulling out small plants which I don't want everywhere, so pay close attention to where the original plant grew and you might find more young ones.

Thanks all - my local garden centre says they may be getting the plants in around March time - in the meanwhile I'll keep a lookout in Wilko's.

Time to try asking around locally for a plant donation I think!!
