These cool blue starry flowers provide a sense of coolness on a hot summer’s day. Creating a neat rounded head of hundreds of star-like flowers this is the perfect flowering-plant for your pots or in direct soil. Either way you’ll be attracting beneficial pollinators to your outdoor plot.
Laurentia Mintakacontains three young and healthy plants; that’s 3 free-flowering plants in this one pack.
We’d recommend you put 3 Laurentia Mintaka plants to a basket or container of 12in (30cm) diameter for create maximum cool-blue impact. Plant up several pots and baskets of five plants for a really impactful and splendidly-scented display. Grow in pots with compost suitable for bedding to ensure the plants have the best soil to grow and thrive in.
Alternatively space 3-5 young plants around 8-12in (20-30cm) apart at the front of a flower bed or in a row of your vegetable patch - to cover a length of around 3 ½ - 5 ft (1-1.5m).
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.
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 sealed 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 3 plants are there in the container, 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.
