Growing Calendar for Rudbeckia Prairie Sun x24 Large Plug Plants
Delivery: Mid April to Mid May
Prairie Sun provides a mass of sunshine flowers practically glowing with luminescence which truly shines in the border or allotment with its classic daisy-shaped flowers.
Want these stars to perform in the house too to enjoy them 24-7? Perfect- they look lovely in vases and decorating your home. Fantastic for the outdoors, fantastic for indoors.
Prairie Sun brings vibrant yellow cheer to your garden through summer and even into early autumn. Grow them outdoors to bring you colour to the garden and allotment and to encourage pollinating insects to stick around and turn your flowers into fruits and vegetables.
Can be added to pots as fantastic floral centrepieces to surrounding bedding and cut a few flowers for vases indoors and bring the outdoors in.
We give you 24 plants which is enough to plant up to 8-10 pots or in a double row in your allotment up to around 16ft (5m) long, spacing plants around 8-12in (20-30cm) apart.
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.
How your plants arrive
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.
Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.
Your flower plants will arrive to you in a plastic wallet contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The wallet allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you. Check all your 24 plants are there in the plastic wallet, according to your order.
Can’t plant straight away?
If you cannot plant up your 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 plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.
Keep your flowers in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic wallet after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
