How your order will arrive
Please see our below guidance on your bedding plant’s care:

  • 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.

Your plant will need to be protected from any danger of frost. Keep them in a sheltered environment until they are ready to go outside, usually around May time. A greenhouse is perfect, but a windowsill or conservatory will suffie as long as they are kept warm (16-18°C is optimal), and receive plenty of sunlight.

Use a good quality balanced potting compost when planting. Slow release fertiliser is advised for best results.
