Summertime snow!

Thousands of dainty white flowers. It looks like a dusting of snow! White baby's breath (Gypsophila paniculata) is a unique border plant with branching stems. You will receive the baby's breath bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This boosts their strength and accelerates their growth. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Baby's breath should be planted in the sun. The soil should be kept slightly damp.

Planting

Gypsophila grows best in an open garden. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Impprove clay garden soil by mixing with some sharp sand. Lay the rhizome of Baby's Breath (Gypsophila paniculata) sideways in the hole approximately 7 cm deep. Refill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Gypsophila paniculata grows and thrives well in an area with complete sunshine in well-drained, lime rich soil.

Care

Baby's Breath is an easy-to-grow perennial that requires minimal maintenance. The soil is allowed to be on the dry side. Stem rot may be a problem in wet conditions with poor drainage. The stems above the ground will die back in the winter. Cover this plant in winter with a layer of fallen leaves. In spring cut all of its stems off and soon there will be some new shoots visible above the ground.

Extra

Baby's Breath blooms with thousands of flowers on highly branched stems. It has always been a popular flower for using in bouquets. These flowers last a long time in a vase. Pick the flowers preferably early in the morning. You only need a few stems. Remove its bottom leaves and put the stems directly into a vase full of lukewarm water with flower food. This species is also called Gypsophila and is part of the carnation family.
