Multi-purpose flowers for your garden galore! A hardy alstroemeria making a neat rounded bush. Flowering from summer and into autumn. Perfect for the border, containers and cutting for the home it’s a true investment for the budding gardener’s garden.
We’d recommend you plant 2 young plants to a pot with a 12in (30cm) diameter for creating maximum colour and impact, or at the front of a flowerbed.
Plant up several pots of 2-3 plants for a sight to behold. Pots dotted around the patio will really impress guests – and for such little effort.
Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in. If you grow them in flower beds mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
If you grow in flowerbeds space plants around 8in (20cm) apart. An area of a yard by a foot (1m by 30cm) will fit around 5 plants.
How your plants arrive
Your plant arrives to you as a young plant containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through it and some small green stems and leaves.
Although it is a little plant it is the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your flower plant will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create a good humid atmosphere for your young plant to thrive and get a really good start to produce you lovely flowers.
Your container comes in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
Check your plant is in the plastic container, with healthy young leaves.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your perennial flower plant straight away into their permanent position make sure the plug of your plant is kept moist at all times.
You can place your plant on a saucer or tray of water so the plug is immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on it and take it out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your plant in a well-ventilated and light position in its plastic container after giving it water. Look to planting in its permanent position within 5-7 days.
