5 Jumbo Plug Plants

10-15cm

Eventual height:

45cm

Eventual spread:

45cm

Time to first crop:

Flower colour:

Blush Pink, Magenta Purple, Violet Purple, Daisy White

Habit:

Bushy
This plant will grow into a sturdy shrub with a bushy habit where the flowers hang off the side stems. Excellent coverage for borders and planters.

Hardiness:

Somewhat Hardy
Plant out after the last frost and they should do well throughout the growing season and into Autumn. After this, if you have planted the Osteospermum in a pot, you can move the plant indoors in a sunny sport and it can last through the winter into the following spring when you can move it back outside after the last frost.

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

Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

One issue Osteospermums can have is with Aphids. 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.MORE

Water Regularly

Water to keep the soil consistently moist. During hot, dry spells, this can require you to water the plant every day, especially if the plant is in a hanging basket or pot.MORE

Full Sun

Osteospermums should be planted somewhere they receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Well-Drained Soil

Osteospermums can tolerate poorer soils so potting compost is not necessary but the soil but be well-draining.MORE

Feed Regularly

Feed every two weeks during the growing period with a general plant food.MORE

Prune Often

Deadhead the plant often to encourage new blooms.MORE
