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.
- Light Requirements: full sun
- Soil Requirements: clay, loamy, chalky, sandy, acid, alkaline, neutral
- Moisture: moist, poorly drained
- Planting Depth: up to 50cm (in pond)
Typha latifolia variegata will tolerate most soil types, and thrives in boggy, poorly drained soil in full sun. It can be planted in a pond in a depth of up to 50cm. This plant is suitable for zones 1, 2 & 3 of a pond. Aquatic and marginal plants should be placed in pond plant baskets filled with aquatic soil (sold separately) and topped with a thin layer of gravel to help prevent the soil from washing away.
