African daisy with a striking colour display

Our Osteospermum FlowerPower "Purple Sun" plug plants are an award-winning variety with magnificent colour. Otherwise known as the African Daisy, its wide, daisy-like blooms have striking mauve centres that graduate into yellow-tipped petals and virtually smother the dark green leafy foliage throughout the summer. The plants are neat, compact, and bushy, and are perfect for planting in borders and containers. They also look great in rockeries and exotic-style gardens.

Packaging

We use a range of environmentally friendly packaging specifically developed to protect your plug plants whilst out for delivery.

An innovative locking design eliminates the need for plastic whilst holding your plugs safely in place.

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.

All of our 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, usually around May time. A greenhouse is perfect but a windowsill or conservatory will do fine as long as they are kept warm (16-18°C is optimal) with plenty of sunlight.

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