Watering: Before planting your bedding plants, it is important to provide them with a generous watering. This can be done by letting the roots of each plant submerge in a bucket of water. Once all air bubbles have escaped, allow each plant to drain. If you are planting your bedding plants in a hanging basket, you will need to water them more frequently (ideally once a day).
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Feed: To really flourish, your bedding plants should have adequate feed. You can either add a slow release fertilizer to their compost, or mix feed into their watering on a weekly basis.
Frost: Young plug plants will need to be protected from any danger of frost. Keep them in a sheltered environment whilst you pot them on ready to go outside, which is usually around May time. A greenhouse is perfect but a windowsill or conservatory will do just fine as long as they are kept warm with plenty of sunlight (16-18°C is optimal). Use a good quality balanced potting compost when planting, and slow release fertiliser is also advised for the best results.
Young plug plants will need to be grown on before they are ready to be planted out in your garden. They will take several weeks to establish and put on the growth required to be garden ready. Please follow our simple steps below to ensure the best results.
- Fill the cell trays or pots with compost and lightly firm down.
- Use a dibber to make a hole similar to the size of the plug plant in the compost, and place your plant into this planting hole. Try to make sure that the top of the plant is level with the compost in the tray or pot.
- Gently water your plants with a watering can that is fitted with a fine hose.
- It is important that you position your plants in a warm, sunny position but to keep them out of direct sun. Once any risk of frost has passed, you can plant them straight into your garden's beds.
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
