How your plants arrive

Each of your flowers arrives to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.

Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.

Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The container allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check your 5 plants are there in the plastic container, according to your order.

How to plant

If you're unable to plant up your flower plants straight away into their permanent position, make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.

You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.

Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic container after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days
