The best place to plant candytuft is in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to dappled shade. Water once a week during dry spells. Mulch around perennial varieties in autumn to protect them from cold and then, in spring, prune the stems back to about 10cm, to promote lush new growth. 2b1af7f3a8
