Country Garden

Plant Lamb's Ear in your Garden
  Soft, fuzzy silver leaves add a dreamy touch to a country garden 

Things You'll Need:

  • Fertilizer
  • Garden Hose
  • Garden Spade
  • Mulch
  • Shovel

  1. Look for plants at nurseries in spring and summer, or year-round in warmer climates.

  2. Choose healthy-looking plants with signs of new growth in leaves and flower buds. Buy lamb's ears in 4-inch to 1-gallon containers.

  3. Choose a site with full sun and well-drained soil.

  4. Dig a hole for each plant no deeper than the plants were growing in the containers; space the holes 1 foot apart.

  5. Add a light application of organic fertilizer to the planting holes before setting the plants in.

  6. Mulch around but not on top of the plants with 3 inches of organic compost.

  7. Water well until soil is completely moist, weekly, during the first year only.
