Echinacea 'Cherry Fluff' Plants x3

  • Catalogue Code 5120-7420
  • Pack Contents: 3x Young Plants

All the fun of the fairground- transported to your garden! Candy floss-like many-petalled echinacea heads look stunning in your border, with their upright confident stems bearing revealing flowers which start off lime green and open to candy floss-pink.

We’d recommend you plant 2 young plants to a container with a 12in (30cm) diameter for creating maximum colour and impact, or at the front of a flowerbed in sun or shade.

Plant up several pots of 2-3 plants for a sight to behold. Pots dotted around the patio will really impress guests – and for such little effort.

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 mix some compost in with the existing soil to give your flowers the best soil to grow in.

If you grow in flowerbeds space plants around 12in (30cm) apart. An area of a yard by a foot (1m by 30cm) will fit around 3-4 plants.

How your plants arrive

Your plants arrive to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through it and some small green stems and leaves.

Although they are little plants they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.

Your 3 flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create a good humid atmosphere for your young plants 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 plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are 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.
