Honesty, also known as Lunaria annua, is a biennial plant that is easy to grow and care for . Here are some steps to help you grow your own Honesty plant:

1. Sowing: Sow the seeds of Honesty in early summer to flower the following spring . You can sow them in pots or a seed tray and transplant them into larger pots when they are large enough to handle. Plant them out into their final growing positions in autumn .

2. Soil: Honesty thrives in fertile, moist, and well-drained soil that is slightly alkaline. It does best in partial shade.

3. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged .

4. Flowers: Let the flowers develop seed heads for attractive winter displays . The purple or white fragrant flowers in spring and early summer are very attractive in their own right and are also attractive to pollinating insects ¹.

5. Propagation: Honesty will self-seed easily if not cut back . However, you can also collect seeds for propagation by saving a few of the seed pods. Sow them in early summer for planting out in autumn and flowering the following spring ¹.

6. Care: Honesty is a low-maintenance plant and doesn’t require feeding or cutting back .
