How to Plant Bergenia Seeds

Sow Bergenia seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-75°F., germination is uneven over a period of 3-6 weeks. Transplant into the garden 18 inches apart.

Growing Bergenia: Plants prefer part sun in warm climates, full sun where summers are mild. Excellent ground cover and container plants. Bergenia tolerates poor soil and little to moderate water. More flowers, better appearance in fertile soil with regular water. Bergenia plants are evergreen in all but coldest climates. Cut back once per year to keep growth neat and compact. Divide when clumps become crowded. Bergenias are rabbit and deer resistant plants.
