Growing Calendar for Scabiosa 'Raspberry Scoop' Plants x3
Delivery: Late April to Late May
Scabiosa Raspberry Scoop has long, sturdy stems that give an impressive floral display in your garden. Happy in containers, in rock gardens and beds this cottage-garden favourite now comes in a delightful rare shade of raspberry-ripple.
The pretty pin-cushion-like blooms in raspberry-pink provide a magnet to butterflies bringing colour and life into your outdoor space. With each plant revealing 20 or more blooms, there are plenty of flowers to enjoy for a great visual display.
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 borders 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 8in (20cm) apart. An area of a yard by a foot (1m by 30cm) will accommodate around five plants.
We’d recommend you plant three young plants to a container with a 12in (30cm) diameter for creating maximum colour and impact, or at the front of a flowerbed. Plant up several pots of three plants for a sight to behold. Pots dotted around the patio will be commended – and for such little effort.
Get some sharp secateurs and cut some of the flowers for vases or bouquets bringing a bit of colour to the home.
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.
