How your plants arrive
Your plant arrives to you as a young plant in a 3 litre pot, containing a pot of soil with roots running through it and some small green stems and leaves.
Your 1 flower plant will arrive to you in a 3 litre pot with a polythene bag covering the root zone. This is all contained in a plastic pack for double-protection (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 plants are 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 their permanent position within 5-7 days.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
