Growing Calendar for Osteospermum Sunset Shades Plants
Delivery: Despatched from Mid April
Sunset Shades are the must-have flower collection to add to your garden or vegetable plot in the summer, with its large and colourful daisy-like flowers in red and a orange blooming profusely and lasting throughout the season. These hot-coloured flowers bring in pollinating bees too which stick around to pollinate flowering vegetables like peas.
Watch the flowers move in the sun - the flower heads turn to face the light, close once it’s dark and open again at dawn the following day. Fascinating feats of nature at work with this flower.
We give you 24 plants which is more than enough to plant in the centre of up to 10 pots surrounded by other bedding or at the front of flower beds up to around 5m (16ft) long.
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.
We recommend you 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 growing medium possible.
Summer-flowering bedding plants are perfect for planting in patio pots, hanging baskets and for filling spaces in borders. Some flower from as early as May, and last through to autumn, making them a gorgeous backdrop for garden parties and barbacues. You start planting and potting up in spring and transferring into containers or beds in early summer.
Spring-flowering bedding plants are perfect for planting in patio pots, hanging baskets and for filling spaces in borders. They often flower before Christmas, providing a little splash of colour when it’s needed most. Come the spring, they produce even more flowers as soon as the weather warms, brightening up the garden early in the season.
