Growing Calendar for Gaillardia Bright Bicolour x24 Large Plugs
Delivery: Mid April to Mid May
You can’t help but notice these garden flowers in the border, with their intense colour and ‘bullseye’ centre where bees can come and go as they please. Grow in the allotment too to bring colour and visual impact to you as well as bring in the pollinators which will pollinate surrounding peas and beans.
Want these brilliant blooms in the house too? Great- they make great flowers for putting in vases and decorating your home. Fantastic for the allotment, fantastic for the home.
We give you 24 plants which is more than enough to plant flowers spaced 8-12 in (20-30cm) apart in a staggered double row in the allotment (16ft) 5m by 1 ft (30cm) for intense colour and impact.
If you grow them in flower beds or allotments mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.
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 all your 24 plants are there in the plastic wallet, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot 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 wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
