Can you please tell me if this plant dies down over winter and all three of mine have and what care should I give them in spring? This my first attempt with this beautiful plant. I fell in love with it at the BBC garden show last year however when I got them home they didn't do we'll in my borders (started to wilt and look sickly) so I transferred them to pots and out them on the patio (half sun/half shade). Hope you can help? Any advice would be gratefully received.
Kind regards
Karen-Marie

Astrantia's are generally shade lovers, they also go dormant for winter, if you want you can tidy them by shearing their foliage.

Don't forget next year when the first flush of flowers have finished cut the plant right back to the ground, foliage included. It will regenerate new foliage and a 2nd flush of flowers.
Astrsntia don't like root disturbance so if moving them in future try to lift as much soil with the plant as possible.
