Flowering well in all soil given full sun Ladybird is a great selection if you have poor, shallow soils or richer soil. We recommend you add to parts of your garden designated to wildflower planting or indeed in containers. They work well in vegetable plots too to bring in important pollinating insects that stick around to pollinate the flowers of soft fruit and fruiting vegetables.

Useful Tip:

You receive 48 plug plants, delivered to your door in ‘blister packs’ that give your plants the perfect root and shoot environment while travelling from our nursery to arrive to your door. Pot them up in 7cm pots and wait for two weeks or so before planting them outdoors, waiting for them to establish well.
