Product Information

With its delightful deep violet and gold flowers, the sweetly scented, two-tone 'Rhubarb and Custard' flowers of this choice Nemesia appear from early summer and will just keep coming right up until November - that's six whole months of colour. The strong and heady perfume is wonderful on a warm summer's day, so be sure to grow in a place where you can appreciate the fragrance.

With a neat , semi-upright habit, 'Rhubarb and Custard' is perfect for taller containers and even hanging baskets where the flowers will tower over the edges and create a dense, floriferous display. Versatile, they make a lovely border plant too, especially when planted en-masse where they'll create a real impact.

Easy to grow Nemesia thrives in cool or hot weather and tolerates a little frost too, so stays in bloom much longer than many summer plants.

Supplied as 6 x plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out.

Care Information

  • Unpack plugs immediately, and stand them in water for an hour.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post but they’ll quickly recover. Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on before planting out when there is no longer a danger of frost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8”) apart to allow them room to grow. Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Deadhead when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
