The Highlights

    • Stunningly deep and bright candy red colour
    • RHS Award Winner for the quality and reliability of blooms
    • Earlier flowering period and more tolerant of cold
    • Flowers fill and spill over pots and baskets
    • Cutting-Raised: more healthy and vigorous plants When a plant is 'Cutting-Raised' that means the plant was grown from the cutting of another plant of that same variety. That means it is an exact clone of that plant. Of course, we pick only the strongest and healthiest plants to take cuttings from and so when a plant is Cutting-Raised they tend to be healthier and more vigorous which means they'll flower more heavily for a longer period of time than a plant that was raised from seed.MORE
    • For best results, plant 12 in a 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
    • Our jumbo plugs will be delivered in mid April. By this time, they will be a good size, the risk of frost will be gone and the ground will be warm and they will shoot off!

Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Calibrachoas can suffer issues with Root Rot, Aphids and Spider Mites. to prevent Root Rot, make sure you do not overwater the plants. Touch the soil and if it feels soggy or sodden, then you will not need to water it again. For Aphids, check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off with your hands and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids. For Spider Mites, again, check the leaves regularly for infestations which may be more apparent by the presence of small webs over the leaves. For Spider Mites you will want to mist the leaves as they much prefer dry conditions.MORE

Water Regularly

Water the plants to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry, spells this means watering the plants at least once a day. If the plants are to be used in hanging baskets you may need to water twice a day if the plants begin to look distressed during hot periods.MORE

Full Sun to Partial Shade

Calibrachoa can do well in a full-sun position to partial shade–somewhere where they will receive at least 6-hours of sunlight every day but will also benefit from a bit of shade during the hottest part of mid-afternoon.MORE

Fertile, Well-Drained

The best soil to use is a quality potting mix or garden compost which is filled with rich organic matter and drains water away easily.MORE

Feed Regularly

Feed every week during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed.MORE

Not Required

Put the tools down, no pruning required!MORE

Habit:

Trailing
These plants grow out and then trail. If grown in a hanging basket, window box, or pot, then they will spill over the container and trail downwards to the floor in cascades of flowers.

Somewhat Hardy
Plant out after the last frost and they should do well throughout the growing season and into Autumn.

Rootstock:

Spacing:

12 per 12inch basket/ pot or space 6 inches apart in the a bed/ border
A good rule of thumb when planting a hanging basket is to use one plant per inch of basket diameter - so 12 plants per 12 inch (30cm) basket. Strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums (Pelargoniums) require more space, so reduce to 5 plants per 30cm 12 inch (30cm) basket. When planting out in the ground, you can space the plants even further, as there is not such a need for a desnse display. Increase to 6 inches for most annuals and 8 inches for the strong growing plants
