How to grow Nemesia?
The Nemesia is a plant with a deep root system that needs a lot of water to establish itself. Water deeply and thoroughly when the top of the soil goes dry. Feed every few weeks with a diluted liquid fertilizer. Trim off any dead of fading flowers to encourage new growth. Perennial nemesias can be kept over winter by bringing plants into a frost-free place that’s not too warm, such as a heated greenhouse, porch, conservatory, or windowsill in a cool room. Water sparingly over winter to prevent root rot.
