Dear Danny

Where did you get this wonderful species
from.

I have just planted mine today in a large plastic
pot that I will place in my just frost free greenhouse. And I use a free
draining soil they like a large amount of water in the spring and early summer
when the temperature rises but in the winter they don't use much.
This species can tolerate a lot of sunlight just
like the other species Dracunculus vulgaris.

With best wishes,
Arno Clement

Danny,

I can relate the following- being geographically very close and
sharing similar/ identical growing conditions as you...

After moving my lone plant around the yard for three years (plus
one season spent in the greenhouse) in an attempt to find its
"sweet spot", I'm now getting best results by growing it in-ground
under a fig tree (= broken direct sunlight). Of course, if you're on
West Cliff Dr. or Portola Ave. & main-lining fog all summer, adjust
your exposure accordingly.

I'd suggest you use the above as a starting point, then experiment on your
own based on observation, etc. If Seán O'Hara's out there, perhaps he
might offer some (more learned) advice as well (!).

Good luck,
