45cm

Time to first crop:

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
