Growing Calendar for Bidens Hawaiian Flare Orange Yellow Centre x5 Plants
Delivery: Early May to Early June
The attractive Hawaiian Flare Red Star variety produces vigorous plants with lots of flowers! Rich-red blooms revealed in their masses to fill pots and containers with warm inviting colours. Each stem is adorned with several buds of flowers that keep coming through all summer long.
We’d recommend you plant five plugs to a basket or container for create maximum colour and impact, or at the front of a flowerbed for a bright and weed-smothering effect.
Plant up several pots and baskets of five plants for a really impactful display. You’ll notice pretty pollinators like bees will love it as much as you do, which is great news for fruiting vegetables. More bees equals more vegetables like peas and beans setting pods.
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 or in allotments mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in. Space plants in flowerbeds around 8-12in (20-30cm) apart so the plants have room to grow and produce you lots of flowers.
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 wallet contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet 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 wallet, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your plug 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.
