We have just bought a half price, end of season Astrantia from the GC, where is the best place to plant it? I am assuming that I need to prune it down, get rid of the flower stems and dying leaves. What type of soil and outlook does it favour and I am assuming it will die down completely and return next year, when do they flower and is there anything I should look out for i.e. slugs, rot etc. I believe they attract bees, so I am looking forward to seeing that next year.
