Top Tips

Prune plants back hard in midsummer if they become scruffy or floppy. Don't deadhead plants completely, leave some on to self-seed.

Care Information

  • Plants are easily divided in early autumn or spring. Remove fading flowers to encourage more buds to form.
  • The compact plants perform best towards the front of a border or in a patio container all summer.
  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour. If you can’t do this, they can sit in Mini Greenhouses for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • 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 using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • 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.
  • Dead-head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
