Create an attractive flower display in late winter and into early spring with primrose Blue Butterfly when other flowers are absent. Each softly-scented flower emerges from February from promising buds and attracts beneficial pollinating insects as they come out of sheltering over winter.

Flowering happily in full sun or even part-shade Blue Butterfly is useful for many garden situations including containers by the door, at the allotment or in a shady flower beds among daffodils and snowdrops.

Growing suggestions:

Plant with aconites and snowdrops in beds underneath garden trees that are just about to come into bud to see in the spring. Alternatively grow around allotment beds to add some colour and encourage pollinating insects.

Helpful tip:

Put your plug plants into 9cm pots filled with soil if the weather is still cold when your flowers arrive and transfer into the garden once they are a little bigger and they fill up your 9cm pots.

How your plants arrive:

Your plants are sent to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots and some young green stems and leaves. Although they are small plants they are just the right size to get growing fast once you plant them in bigger pots.

Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic container with a lid (which acts as a mini-greenhouse) to create an effective humid atmosphere for your young plants to thrive and get a promising start to give you lovely flowers. Your container may come in a box for extra protection when leaving our nursery to arriving at your home.
