Growing Calendar for Vinca minor Ralph Shugart 3L Potted Shrub
Delivery: Early February to Early November
The propeller-petalled periwinkle is a lovely plant to creep along the ground in sun or shade. The glossy variegated leaves are evergreen too for year-round top performance.
You’ll receive our ornamental shrubs in 3 litre pots from March.
This is at the perfect stage of development for your plants to get growing in the season ahead.
Plant in well-draining yet rich soil, incorporating some fertiliser like Organic Extra at planting and water well.
Feed with a high-potassium fertiliser as they come into flower.
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.
