Caring and Maintenance

Golden creeping Jenny is a creeping plant, which needs to be trimmed in order to prevent it becoming invasive. It thrives in humus-rich soil.

Planting

Golden creeping Jenny will grow in full sun or partial shade, in moist or dry humus-rich soil. Can be planted in a container or near bog gardens. Propagate by stem cuttings in spring.

Perennials are flowering plants which grow and bloom over the spring and summer and then die back every autumn and winter. They live for more than two years and typically grow structures that allow them to adapt to living from one year to the next through a form of vegetative reproduction rather than seeding. Perennial plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion, capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate ground and surface water, and outcompete weeds. They grow very well in conditions that are poor in resources due to their earlier emergence in the spring and their development of larger root systems, enabling them to access water and soil nutrients deeper in the soil.

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
