How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place the pot in a sheltered sunny spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting in the ground:

Plant in moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade. Dig a hole the same size as the pot your plant comes in and place the plant in the hole with the top of its compost level with the surface of the soil. Water well.

Aftercare:

Water regularly in the first year after planting. Deadhead regularly to prolong the flowering period.

Mulch in autumn with compost or well rotted farmyard manure to protect the roots.

In late spring once frosts are over, cut back to just above the new shoots, or to the lowest healthy leaves.
