Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

20 Jumbo Plug Plants
Plug plants are small seedlings that allows you to skip the germination process involved in having to sow from seed.

Height on arrival:

10-15cm

Eventual height:

20-40cm

Eventual spread:

30-40cm

Time to first crop:

Flower colour:

Apricot Orange, Raspberry Red, Marigold Orange, Candy Red, Tiger Orange, Canary Yellow

Habit:

Trailing, Bushy
Bushy plants will grow into sturdy shrubs where the flowers hang off the side stems. Excellent coverage for borders and planters. These plants grow out and then trail. If grown on the floor they make great low-spreading plants. 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.

Hardiness:

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

Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

One issue Osteospermums can have is with Aphids. Calibrachoas can suffer issues with Root Rot, Aphids and Spider Mites. Begonias can have issues with Powdery Mildew, Bacterial Leaf Spot and Vine Weevils. 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. to defend against the bacterial infections you try to maintain good garden hygiene. Space the plants out adequately to allow for good air circulation so it does not become to crowded and humid within the leaves. Check leaves regularly for Vine Weevil infestations including small notches bitten into the leaves. Try to pick off as many as you can if you find them, including possible larvae. You can also use specific nematodes that will target the Vine Weevils and cause them to die if you notice a serious infestation.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

Geraniums prefer somewhere where they receive around 4-6 hours of sun every day and where they have some partial shade during the hottest parts of the day, but can grow in full sun amongst other plants. The other plants prefer full sun, somewhere they will receive 6-8 hours of sunlight a day.MORE

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

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 Begonias, Calibrachoas, Osteospermums and Geraniums every two weeks during the growing period with a general plant food.MORE

Prune Regularly

For best results in terms of flowers, you should regularly check and deadhead (remove old, dead flowers) the plants.MORE
