Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your Skullcap, dig a hole that’s approximately two times the size of your plant’s root ball. Place your plant, back fill your soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Once established, the Pink Skullcap is drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule. Water your Skullcap about once weekly or bi-weekly, or more often during extreme heat. Container-planted Skullcaps should also be watered more frequently. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 3 inches down – if the soil is dry here, it’s time to water your plant.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilizing your Pink Skullcap shouldn’t be necessary, but if you notice stalled growth, fertilizer before new growth begins in spring with a well-balanced blend.
4. Pruning: Simply remove spent blooms to encourage reblooming and cut away any dead growth. It may also be beneficial to cut the Skullcap back to the ground at the end of the growing season – this encourages fuller growth the next year.
