The Highlights

    • A mix of the prettiest pinks with the most delicate of flowers
    • A range of habits and shapes
    • All you need to create a superb pot or basket
    • Selected for their fantastic floral production
    • Expect flowers from the start of summer through to Autumn
    • 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 8 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!

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

15 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:

25-45cm

Eventual spread:

30-60cm
The petunias have a spread of 50-60cm as they are long, trailing plants. The Geraniums also trail but only to 30-40cm and the Fuchsia has a spread of around 30-45cm

Time to first crop:

Flower colour:

Fuchsia Pink, Daisy White, Blush Pink

Habit:

Trailing, Upright
The tall stems of upright annuals are perfect for standing out in a pot or container or taking pride of place in a border. Several can be planted close together. 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. This Fuchsia is not a hardy variety but can tolerate cold temperatures to freezing and perhaps even beyond in a sheltered location.

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

The most common Petunia problems include Aphids, Budworms, Mites and Leaf Miners. 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 Leaf Miners, non-pesticide methods to combat against the bugs are to spray your plant down with Neem Oil and to also purchase specific parasitic wasps which will target the Miners and cause them to die. Again, Neem Oil is a good tool to use against Budworms and Mites to. Fuchsias can have issues with Vine Weevils and Rust. to combat Vine Weevil, inspect the leaves regularly. If there are notches bitten off the ends of the leaves then this is a strong sign of adult Vine Weevils. At night you can go out and inspect the plant with a torch and, if you see any, pick them off and put them into a jar of water. You can also use specific nematodes which will target Vine Weevils and Cause them to die. Rust presents itself as discolouring on the leaves and especially orange, fuzzy like patches. There is no specific fungicides for Rust so, if spotted, you should prune away the leaves with clean prunes (washing the prunes after as well) and burn any leaves. 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 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-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 two weeks during the growing period with a high-potash feed such as liquid-tomato feed.MORE

Prune Regularly

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