    • Brunnera 'Jack Frost' is a popular perennial plant known for its striking silver-blue foliage and small, bright blue flowers in the spring. It's a hardy plant that thrives in the UK climate. Here are care instructions for Brunnera 'Jack Frost' when grown outdoors in the UK:
    • Planting Location: Choose a location that receives partial to full shade. Brunnera prefers dappled sunlight or filtered shade, especially in the afternoon. Ensure the soil is well-draining and rich in organic matter. Brunnera prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil (pH 6.0 to 7.5).

    • Planting Time: Spring or early autumn is the best time to plant Brunnera. Avoid planting in extreme heat or cold.

    • Planting Depth:Plant the Brunnera 'Jack Frost' at the same depth as it was in its nursery container. Typically, this is about the same depth as the root ball.

    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, especially during the growing season (spring and summer). Be careful not to let the soil dry out completely, as Brunnera prefers evenly moist conditions.

    • Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch (such as compost or well-rotted leaf mulch) around the base of the plant to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

    • Fertilizing: Fertilize your Brunnera 'Jack Frost' in early spring with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive foliage growth and fewer flowers.

    • Pruning: In late autumn or early spring, you can trim back any dead or damaged foliage. This helps improve air circulation and the overall appearance of the plant. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) is not necessary for Brunnera but can encourage a neater appearance.

    • Winter Care: In the UK, Brunnera 'Jack Frost' is generally hardy and doesn't require special winter protection. However, a layer of mulch can help protect the roots during harsh winters.
