Planting is done in bright places, with protection against the morning sun or partial shade. They prefer colder locations, soil rich in organic matter, moist, well drained.

Panselutele are the best choice for winter gardens. To have a longer period of prosperity, semintele be signed in August or September at the latest. To bloom in June-September, seeds are alike in February-March. The seeds are covered with a thin layer of earth. Plantulele are planted at 20 cm distance from each other, in May.

Ideal for bouquets are panselutele of Giant Swiss variety, which have larger stems and flowers, but are less tolerant of heat. It can be used as a species for borders.

Panselutele are attacked by aphids and snails with shell.
