About your plant - Our reliable nurseries have a real passion for plants. Their extensive range and reputation are key to the foundations of the business. Our expert nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning perennials, and will do so until hours before they are packed.

Packaging- Please note that perennials die back to soil level in winter. If ordered during the colder months they might not experience the best growth. However, provided they are cared for accordingly they will grow back in the spring. Your perennials will be expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which will hold it securely in place. Your plant will then be delivered via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

A generally easy to grow perennial, it is happy in sunny or partially shaded areas of your garden, and in most moist soils, the best being well-drained soil. Once established it wont need watering unless you cut back some of its flowers to stimulate new growth, otherwise it does not have any special pruning requirements, just prune to clear any decaying or dead foliage. Happy through winter as well just clear any yellowing flowers that might appear. Watch out for funguses and sawflys as it can be affected by them.
